Fuel Mileage

I was wondering about the fuel genie or the tornado is it worth the money, I haven't found any real info on it.Blocking the air with shinny metal blades seems to restrict the air.

Agree with Irish FX4 on that
Even a K&N drop in will work much better.

Well the tornado isn't very restrictive @ all..
what it does it causes the air to spin so when the fuel is added to it the fuel is spun into it causing a better more even mixture of air/fuel..
Which will make a more efficient burn make less fuel used for air..

as for the air intake.. What does it do? It give you more power.. What is the source of power? More air/fuel.. What does more air/fuel do to gas mileage? Makes it worse because your getting more power.. I would lighten up on the pedal if you want better fuel mileage.. MAke sure it is up to date with the maintance.. spark plugs/wires/ fuel filter.. good clean air filter.. (maybe a k&n drop in)

Keep the engine running efficient and smooth so it isn't wasting fuel..
less weight also if it isn't needed..

You would have to drive a lot of miles before the saving would out way the cost even with an intake.

I got an 06 4L with 4:10 rear FX4 Level 2 and I get 15mpg. So if you get better than that, be happy.

Do the dealers have any problems with new intakes (warranty issues)?
