Tornado Fuel Saver Does Not Work

If you've like me and have ever seen the Tornado Fuel Saver advertised on TV, you may have always wondered whether this $40 device really works or not. Intuitively, this device seems like it could work - it first right inside the cold air intake hose of your engine, and claims to boost the amount of air your engine receives in order to boost both your engine's power and fuel efficiency. The device almost looks like a little jet engine placed inside your engine.

However, Consumer Reports has done its own testing and claims that this device does not provide any additional power or fuel efficiency. They recommend against buying this. The EPA has actually done its own test on the this device and many other devices and has come to similar conclusions. See the EPA results for yourself.

Buyer beware - don't be fooled by the late night 'As Seen on TV' ads.

I don't see any data on the Tornado fuel saver on the EPA site. Also, one can't see the Consumer Reports site without paying for it. Can you please be more precise about where and what you saw on these pages?

It gave me results on my first tank of gas. 3.5 mpg as stated on the spec sheets.

Go to the Consumer Reoprts online home page. Ignore sign-in and join options. Find the Search blank near the top of the page. Type in 'Tornado gas' and click on Search. Several options will appear for you to click on. Pick the Tornado gas one. Three devices tested will appear, the Tornado being one.
