    Have a look at this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/gas-fuel-saver...1%7C240%3A1318

    It advertises that it creates a vortex increasing airspeed therefor power. Sounds like utter s:/t to me. Surly you just want cold air.

    I thought it sounded like a bad idea. I wish you could do something to stop people selling crap like that with false claims of increased MPG and 33% more power.

    HOW DOES IT WORK

    When the Twister is installed in the air intake of your vehicle, the incoming air travels through the twister and produces a vortex. Air moves quicker into the engine when this is done. More air into the engine means the fuel burns better and stronger, SAVING YOU GAS. Tests have shown up to a 33% increase in MPG. And have also proven 20 HP gains.
    what tests!

    In fact can someone who uses ebay post a question for that product asking what tests prove their claim

    Hi,
    please look at my feedback, all buyers are sufficent with it. I cannot send a proof ot something. Maybe you try 1 and if you are convinced you can place a bigger order.
    regards
    Peter
