“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.
