Default Fuel saver

Hey everyone! I was looking at the Tornado Fuel Saver and wanted to know if anybody has ever tried it out before. What have been the gains that you have seen? It seems like a pretty basic the design makes sense to me and it's $30 with 90 $ back policy. Any help would be great!

Junk, about as useful as stuffing a sock in your intake tube.

That is the most useless mod ever...On most cars, the intake components already create a "air swirl" effect, which is what this tornado thing is claiming to do...Another way to save fuel though is to keep that right foot off the gas pedal a little...

I notice those things didn't last long in the retail parts stores in my area. I'm sure there's a reason for that.

Been there, Done that, Sent it Back.

don't waist your $$$$ they don't do much of anything.

I had one on my '02 Sonoma (wife got it for me) for about 3 wks. Not once did I notice an increase in performance or gas mileage. I took it out and sent it back to the company. I FINALLY got my refund, but it took close to 6 months, and they keep sending me b.s. wanting to know why etc.

I finally told them to kiss off, and leave me alone. I sent their product back, because it didn't do what they claimed!

ok, cool. Thanks everyone for the answer. Now that I know some of you have had it before and tried it I will hold off on it.
