How does the tornado fuel saver work?

The Tornado Fuel saver is an additive that you put in with your gas to help to save gas.


Answer by  hypertech (690)

Think about it. If a car company could make their vehicle save gas while producing more power just by installing a cheap piece of metal, they would in a heart beat. The tornado fuel saver is a scam with clever marketing techniques.

It is designed to create a gain in vehicle mileage efficiency by lightening the load in the vehicle... by reducing the amount of money you have! Popular Machines and Consumer Reports *both* found ZERO results in using it. It's simply a tax on stupid people... Save your money.

It helps you control your gas pedal so that you don't put too much gas for too long, but there is no actual proof that it really works!

A test run by Popular Machines Magazine showed that there was no fuel savings. It is supposed to make the air between the air cleaner and the intake manifold spin like a tornado and therefore burn fuel more efficiently. Consumer reports also show that there is no difference to helping save gas.

It is a actually a metal insert that is placed in the intake system of an engine. It's purpose is to create a vortex or "swirl" in the air helping to aid in fuel mixing supposedly increasing engine efficiency. However I imagine gains would be minimal in an injected engine.


Answer by  bigdaddy (150)

the tornado fuel saver uses its spiral design to create a vortex inside your air box. This in turn will cause a vacuum on the intake side of your engine. Causing air to be forced in instead of sucked in.

That is a metal insert placed in the intake of a vehicle designed to create a swirl effect in the intake charge to "enhance" the fuel mixing in the cylinders.

Anything I've heard called the "Tornado Fuel Saver" is an aluminum ring with angled slats inside, kind of like an inside-out turbine. it's affixed above the carb or throttle body and supposedly modifies airflow in the intake Problem is it's bunk, it doesn't work, in fact it hurts fuel economy.
