    i've never heard of that product... but my friend bought the "Tornado" a couple months ago, and he said he noticed that a full tank now last him 20 more miles than it did before he got it. So he gained about a mile extra a gallon. not much but it's a start.

    1. There is nothing magnetic in fuel, and nothing in fuel reacts to a magnetic field. so they are full of shit.

    2. Yes, you will save gas with a "tornado". It restricts your intake so your motor does not get as much air as it normally would, which, in turn, causes the ecu to send less gas.. so you increase fuel mileage, and reduce horsepower. That is all folks.. the tornado is a full of shit device. Especially on a honda with the intake manifold designed as it is. Any "spin" or "turbulence" that the air may have picked up is straightened out by the time it makes it to the injected fuel.

    3. Fuck all of these miracle cures. You want slightly better mileage? Grab a K&N air filter and slap it in. Already have one?? Rip out those fuel injectors that have seen 100k+ miles and have them professionally serviced. Make sure your tires are properly inflated and your plugs, wires, cap and rotor are in good shape.

    Do all of that and I guarantee you will see a minimum 5 mpg increase.

    oh, and toss those platinum plugs. Go grab a set of normal, every day NGK plugs. :thumbsup:

    As import enthusiasts, we have the greatest fuel economy out of any "hotrod" division, and we still search for ways...

    Just seems weird... lol

    tornado? never heard of it, i really don't buy crap like that, i think if your wanting better airflow, get a freakin intake, i did notice that i saved 2-6 mpg more with my short ram aem intake than the stock one, not sure if thats it, but with an intake and headers, i'm up to 40-42 on the freeway, thats as or better than the new civics now a days.

    no it dosn't restrict the air and cause the ecu to send less gas. It creats a turbulence that helps the fuel stay in suspension longer. They work the same way a tb spacer works and yes they do work i have dyno charts to show they do .

    as for the rest of the stuff you said it true and does work.
