Anyone ever used one of those Tornado Fuel Saver things?

You have got to be kidding? Those things restrict air flow and drop milage. In a carburated car they may mix the fuel a bit better but not in our fuel injected trucks. Stay far away from these things, no matter how slick the advertising is.

Yup... don't bother. The "Tornado", "Fuel Saver", and others like them are just marketing hype.

Just for kicks, I bought one when I had my '03 Ram... went through two tanks of gas, and kept the driving habits the same. Actually lost 1 mpg on average. Returned the thing and got my $68 back

This Tornado thing will not save enough gas for you to notice...don't waste your money....just drive normal and let all these small vehicles blow us by as they laugh at us....I have no problem with that since I know I can beat them to the next gas station.....

If the tornado really did help increase gas mileage you can bet the manufacturers would install them at the factory.
