Libel and slander is illegal.

Anybody can create a username on a car forum or online market place and submit pro-oil agenda communications.

Take a look at the comments on the Ford F-150 community forum. These people haven't even tried using the product and their comments are absurd. The forum admins posted a technical topic titled, "Does the Tornado fuel saver really work?" Then, our customers responded. We archived the forum topic and comments in case "it disappears."

How exactly does the Tornado Air work?

Answered by Automotive Industry Expert & Certified Master Mechanic

The Tornado works on the simple principle of creating a swirling air motion or “Tornado” effect on the incoming air stream. Anytime you make the air move around an object, or cause it to swirl or spin, there is an increase in air velocity.

This is exactly what generates “LIFT” on an aircraft wing, and how the booster works in a carburetor’s venturi. This is Bernoulli’s Principle, and is used in conjunction with Newton’s 2nd law.

The Tornado is actually a vortex generator that can improve the airflow in the intake manifold. Many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) use this technique to improve engine efficiency in current models. The first example is Ford's 3 valve Triton 5.4 Liter engine with variable valve timing.

"Many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) use this technique to improve engine efficiency"

Ford's elaborate system uses vortex generating flaps that are on common shafts operated via a bellcrank which is connected to a bi-directional DC motor. The motor receives a signal from the PCM or engine management computer, and activates the shafts to position the vortex generating flaps.

Mercedes-Benz uses a similar setup, and refers to them as "Tumble Flaps." Again, nothing more or less than flaps designed to create a "vortex" or swirl the air to improve engine efficiency. For those "non-believers," below are some photos to demonstrate the use of a vortex generator in an OEM intake manifold. Can you identify the application?

Will Tornado work together with my aftermarket air intake and air filter?

Works even better


Tornado provides even better results when teamed up with an aftermarket air intake and filter. Be sure to measure the (I.D.) Inside Diameter size of your aftermarket air-intake and order the right size Tornado from our Parts Store.

What's that I hear about 2X Tornados?

Even better performance


If you want maximum air velocity, we suggest measuring your throttle body for a second installation there and also by your air filter box. 2X units will improve mileage and power significantly. Some vehicles have dual air intake systems and will require 2X units, i.e Infiniti G-Series which can handle up to 4X units.


How long does Tornado last and does it need maintenance?

Zero maintenance


Tornado lasts a lifetime and doesn't require any maintenance or replacements.


Is Tornado one-size-fits-all?

No

There are several sizes, but only one that will fit your air-intake.

You can measure your own air intake, by opening it up. It takes 5 minutes. You'll need to measure the inside diameter size (I.D.) of your air intake tube.

Tornado Air is not compatible with Electric or Hybrid Vehicles.

Where can I purchase Tornado Air?

Only at our online shop


Previously, Tornado was available nationwide at automotive retailers Autozone, Pepboys, Kragen, and NAPA — before Tornado Air was slandered on national television and internet publications, paid for by the Oil Industry, so as to be pulled off the retail shelves limiting American's access to gas saving products and ideas.

What if I'm not happy with my results?

If you're not happy, we're not happy

Contact us for a return, we'll take care of the shipping costs. To be eligible for a return, you must have purchased a genuine part from our online store and the unit must be returned in its original packaging in good condition. Damaged units and/or units without the packaging are ineligible for return.


Is Tornado Air easy to install?

Easy

Install takes about 5 minutes with a phillips head driver.

For good results, install Tornado Air by the Throttle Body, right before the butterfly valve. For great results, install two units, (1) by the Throttle Body, and (2) by the Air Filter Box.

Do you sell Tornado on auction sites?

No

Fake products are not covered by our warranty and will often soon break after purchase. Beware of knock-offs and cheaply made products online. There's a good chance you'll receive the wrong size and have to deal with auction returns. We all know how that goes. Cheap products can come apart in your air intake and ruin your engine, caveat emptor.


Why would Consumer Reports publish a biased viewpoint?

Pro-Oil Agenda Operations


Short Answer:
Because they don't want you to save gas

Best Guess:
Because they installed Tornado Air backwards on their dummy vehicle

Our Conclusion:
Because they're linked to Oil Companies

Be aware of the media and the "public interest" organizations

What about my Mercedes?

Not compatible

If you're looking to save gas on your Mercedes SL63 AMG, you probably shouldn't be driving one.


Will Tornado Air void my vehicle's warranty?

No
