I can't say from experience but from what others have said, they don't work on any vehicle. A friend check one out years ago on a carbed engine. His results were the same as this video below....zippo increased mpg.

It is primarily used to suck the money out of your wallet into who ever is marketing it.

There are a few objective test reports floating about, as I remember they showed no increase to a slight decrease depending on the vehicle. 100% snake oil.

Tried one years ago in a 1984 motor home with a 454 ci engine. 6.5 mpg without the tornado. 6.5 MPG with the tornado. Did not work for me.

Installed one on my coach several years ago. It did NOT work. Waste of money. The same for the magnets on the fuel line. I am not a sucker, I worked as a service manager and I always took "magic cures" off of trade-ins and tried them on my coach. The only things I found that help Is, flow through mufflers, Slowing down, and Changing the air intake on the Ford V10.

As was said above, they do not work. What works is smooth air in and out of an engine. Slowing down is the best way to save fuel.

Ford has one that is called by them the saxaphone. It works very well. All my customers were very happy with the install. Of course it is for the vertical air filter. The air filter after 2005 works fine. The cost of the Ford is less than $100.00 I would highly recommend the intake change if you have a 98 thru 2005 V10.Banks also has a intake, which I installed on my coach. It cost a lot more and I like it, but I feel it is not that much better than Ford for the money. If you need the Ford part no's contact me and I will be glad to send them to you.

Thanks GA. When I get mine back from the hospital, I'm going to take a good look at the one on it now and see if I can improve on it. Is it the whole thing or just a better initial inlet opening? I have some 4" dryer duct in the attic that might be better than what is on there.

The part looks like a saxaphone. Hense the name. It is about 1 foot by three feet. The main thing is, you remove two parts from the old air intake.(the most restrictive) It also cures the water intake problem. It is the best hundred dollars you will ever spend.

I will keep that in mind. Thx again. If it is an `05 and newer, I might be able to ebay it for even less than $100.00.
