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..

Fuel mileage sucks this time of year. Winter gas combined with the temp gets me about 400-450kms to a tank on average. During summer I always top 500kms before the fuel light.
