Tornado Air Management Systems

Does anyone know if the Tornado Air Management Systems will really increase a car's mileage results by 10% plus?

Look in articles.
Read everything in the glossary.
Learn about driving with load, FAS, EOC, codfish.
Recognize that you'll get better mpg at 10-15 mph slower than whatever speed you've prolly been driving even if you change nothing else.

Pump your tires to the max stated on sidewall labeling. Or a few pounds over if you dare. Make sure they're at that pressure when cold in the a.m. before starting up. Usually that means pump them to a few pounds over max sidewall, then check in the a.m. and adjust if needed. Next time you buy tires make sure they're rated at least 44 psi, maybe 50+ if you can.

Put in a clean oem type air filter. Forget K&N. For max FE you're going to be using less fuel-air mixture, not more.

If it would do that then the car manufacturers would put them in at the factory. Sorry.

No they wouldn't!

My friend had one in his chev 1 ton catering truck. Driving in on a route day after day he saw a 1.5mpg decrease and go this money back!

My opinion - it may work in SOME engine intake designs but NOT all of them!

Yeah, that's why they don't put them in at the factory.

They only work on some Fords. You put a smaller one in on some Chryslers than what they say then they work.
