Yes it does... as long as you remove the throttle plate so that the
airsteam doesnt get 'straightened out' again.

Notice the TV demos are always on the dyno at WOT.

Where is the site that sells the companion engine control computer?... as
you have now turned the engine into a binary device, the ignition supply
must be switched on and off to moderate speed and power.

Re: Buring too much fuel

Within the past year, Popular Mechanics or Popular Science tested a bunch of
the fuel savers (this included)advertised on tv, none of them worked as
advertised, some reduced milage.

The calender is worth a hell of a lot more than the Tornado!
At least it has no chance of being harmful to the engine. I
keep wondering what happens if one of those blades snaps off
and goes into the engine. If these things actually worked,
the owners of the patents couldn't beat the auto
manufacturers' lawyers out of their homes and offices fast
enough.

Re: Buring too much fuel

While these devices rarely, if ever, do what thery are advertised as doing,
they will do exactly what they are designed to do.... and that is to
separate you from your money.

I actually saw the folks on one of the "fix your car" TV shows RECOMMEND the
Tornado! I couldn't believe my eyes. They installed it along with some other (actually
worthwhile) modifications and touted it's effectiveness. IIRC, it was Two Guys Garage
on the Speed Channel.

Awww shoot. I was hoping to install as many of these things as I could until my car
actually made gas. No hope of retiring on the excess now.

I can see it on a Carb.. or ESPECIALLY a TBI.

Ever watch those two injectors at an idle, you know it couldnt HURT!

Re: Buring too much fuel

The huge "clear channel" radio station in my area has a car show that
advertises and supports the Tornado. There is no shame any longer.

Re: Buring too much fuel

THAT AIN'T TRUE JIM!!!!!
I have a tornado, turbonator, fuel line alignment magnets, throttle body
spacer, spark plug tip extenders, air gap distributor cap, and exhaust tip
spinners on my car, and it now gets 125 mpg.. and when I put it on the dyno,
it had so much hp, that the dyno could not read it!!!! :-)
