Sounds like you did put some work into the heep! Any actual mpg gains with the tornado air thing?

NO it means that I did notice a change but I had to move the postion of the piece from where they tell you to put it. before the piece I was getting 11/12 around town-now I get 14/14.5 around town.

No change at all in driving habits and you gained 3 MPG?

I have always driven my jeep like a jeep. I have never floored or tried to race other cars. I filled the tank one week before I installed the piece(took notice of mpg), When on empty I put it in and then refilled the tank. I always get the same gas from the same gas station. I did get more milage with it.

No bull?
It really worked for you??

I've been tempted to try one of these, especially since they have the 30 day money back guarantee.

Plus I read a review of one hooked to a V8 GC, in which they measured a 2mpg increase.

http://www.dirtroad.com/tornado.htm

Though I wonder if the review is sponsored by the Tornado company...

Do you work for the company?


I think I'm going to give it a shot. most people who ***** about it, have never even tried it...

I put it towards the throttle body...made no sense to me to have it all the way down near the air box. After it goes through it it hits the rippled tubing(totally ruining whats happening). This way when it goes through it only has to contend with the throuttle body its self(just my thought on why it would work better there)
And yes it did work for me( and no I dont work for the company )
