Who doesn't want to save a little on fuel every day? With prices of gas seemingly on the rise every day, it seems very important to be able to find a way to even the odds. Enter the Tornado fuel saver. Among the fuel savers out there, this one was simple to install and provide a little extra savings and performance boosts at an affordable price.
Will one size fit all?
You have to be careful when shopping for a Tornado Fuel Saver because there are differences in the specifications-diameter and height-depending on two things: the type of engine that you have and the make and model of your vehicle.
Tornados in carbureted engines tend to be of a larger size than those in fuel-injected engines. That's because the sizes of the intakes vary between the two. Once that is out of the way, the next thing to realize is that between makes and models are small differences in engine design-however similar the design sensibilities are.
Within your vehicle's manual are the dimensions of the intakes as well as the specific type of engine you have. Catalogs and online retailers helpfully add the dimensions of the Tornado Fuel Savers that they sell-do the homework and shop carefully.
How do you know you're getting the right one?
The beauty of the Tornado is that it has no moving parts that are likely to break down. The design is simple: three precision-engineered slotted fins evenly spaced around the body of the Tornado. Look for three triangular shaped protuberances shaped like "V's" and attached to the wall of the device.
Another guide to getting the genuine article is price. It tends to fluctuate around $50 but is rarely higher than that after Federal taxes. Be cautious when you come across a lower offer because you might be duped into buying a cheap rip-off that can break and leave residue inside your engine!
