“Tornado” Can Spell Relief
for Consumers Concerned About Rising Gas Prices
SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif.,
March 11 / -- Nervous consumers concerned about high gas prices may
want to consider a Tornado for their cars. A Tornado is a
non-moving, turbine shaped gas-saving device, which creates a vortex
or swirling effect to the engine. The result is improved airflow
into the engine's combustion chamber, causing a more efficient
mixture between air and fuel.
The product takes only a few
minutes to install and the manufacturer says it will save 1 to 2
miles per gallon. With gas near $2 a gallon, a 15 gallon fill-up
could save $2 to $4 per tank.

gas prices are pushing an increasing number of U.S. motorists to

clean-burn diesel technology.
Hybrid cars pair a traditional
internal combustion engine with an electric motor.
At high speeds, hybrids rely on the gas engine for power; in
stop-and- go traffic, the electric engine gets involved.
By switching between gas and electric power sources, hybrid
cars can substantially increase fuel efficiency while doing much
less damage to the environment.
