    lol jk... i dont actualyl believe it works but if someone proves it to me, (that has not changed their driving habit) it WOULD be worth the $70 dont u agree?
    it was really worth it to that guy with the 06 tiburon that came in the shop last week that has to fork up the dough for a 7k 2.7 v6 because that stupid piece of shit broke apart and made a real tornado inside his engine.

    IMO tornados are not worth it. How can something that is restricting air be good for gas mileage?? I believe the gains are psychological. If someone spends $70 on it, they really want it to work, so in their head, it does. Also they probably don't realize it but they start driving the car more gently to bump up the gas mileage, so it's the driving not the tornado that actually made it work.

    My car came with something even better than a tornado - A COMPUTER FAN!! Yes, the dumbass who owned my car before me actually cut apart a computer fan and stuffed it in front of the MAF. Brilliant!

    Sometimes I think people should be made to take a car ownership test in addition to their driving test.....

    I have a sticker you put on your rear bumper that helps push the car forward when in motion and will gain on average 4mpg's and 12HP. I only charge $69 for it.

    Did it sound like a supercharger or something when it spun? Maybe it was a nice noise maker.

    Geeez, I didn't know that even a WHOLE Hyundai Tiburon was worth 7K! The Tornado is in the same category as those propellers that people put into their trailer hitch mounts, and is just as useful. No, wait! I take that back: at least watching the propeller spin is entertaining for 1/2 second, so it must have SOME redeeming value!
