Like the "tornado"? The guy who works the counter at the local parts store we buy from at work put one in his 95 tahoe. He said he didnt notice much if any difference, but he's the only one I know of.

I’ve saw them advertised but know nothing about them. My guess is that their made for selling not fuel saving.

yea it sounds to good to be true.. 30% increase of gas usage.. you would think companies would make something like that stock if it were so great.

Mythbusters did an episode on them, plus I read an article in Popular Mechanics a while back about them. Non of the devices either tested worked as advertised, and a couple even made fuel economy worse.
