well as far as i know the tornado isnt a chip just something that goes in your air intake i dont have one but iv talked to alot of people that do none of them say it robs your gas milage most of them say i gives you more more or it stays the same or it does a little bit of both all depends on what motor you have so best thing is to do is just give it a shot try it out and as for the clamp on the gas line iv never herd of it

The Fuel Saver you speak of is a pair of magnet that get ziptied to your fuel line... supposedly the 'strong' magnetic field that it creats is enough to break up the fuel particle for a more even burn... sound like it MIGHT work if it is a REALLY strong magnetic field (like, the kinda electromagnet you see at the scrap yard on the big crane), but I doubt that the little one on that fuel device do any good at all.

As for the tornado, intereting theory, but I doubt that causing a distrubance to the air will create a better flow of air in the intake... Most guys want the most freely flowing intake they can get with the straightest shot of air for the best flow... and the easiest energy will be the energy that uses the least amount of gas... so to me, the Turbo will rob you of fuel milage...

As for the chip, it will NOT be the simple magic that it claims to be for a real and long term result.

Now, that all being said, if anyone has any documented proof that any of this work, PLEASE POST!

All of these methods sound like a lot of BS, especially the magnet one lOL.

Best fuel saver is prob a LIGHTER FOOT !!!!

They call them rare earth magnets ..a buddy of mine got them didn't see adifference but they did make a small difference on a diesel vechile!

I put a open air cone filter on my cars(3.5) and got 1 mpg extra, removed the rear rez from the concord and it helped as well(if only in noise)!

A vacume guage would be the most reveling thing you could add to show the bad habits!
