Tornado Gas Saver

Hi Everyone,

New to the Board and a New Owner of a Xterra.....Yea!!!

What a great board..



Iím new to driving such a great machine. I have drove cars all my life. Iím 58 so this is a real treat to me.

I donít do any off road stuff, and I really didnít know that much about this Xterra. But after a few weeks of driving it, and reading your board , I know I made the right decision.

My question is this: I seen on T.V. this ď Tornado Gas Saver ď and I was wondering if anyone of you ever tried it and if so what was the results?

Thanks in advance,,,,,,

Great Truck and great boardÖ

Havn't tried it personally but from what I've heard it's a scam. Someone I know bought one and said it did nothing but lighten his wallet.

Tornado is crap. If all it took were a $5 piece of tin to do what it claimed, every auto maker would build one into their vehicle at the factory.

Yes, my wife said the same thing, but I thought there be some truth to it. Doesn't seem to be the case, no one has told us otherwise.

Re: Tornado Gas Saver

I can't recall who tested, may have been one of the offroad magazines as it was a Chev/GMC 4x4 but there was NO difference. Pretty obvious anyways, but CRAP CRAP CRAP!!!!!

Just another one to sell alongside garbage like the fuel line magnets and other crap for the gullible.
