Curious to know if anyone has installed the Tornado Fuel Saver in the S80 and whether it actually delivered on the fuel saving promise.

Default Thanks for the advice

Would you say the same about the K&N product set?

The K&N product is dyno tested and proven to show horsepower gains. The "Tornado" is a gimmick that only impedes airflow. They look like they are made from recycled beer cans, and I would be afraid it would break apart in the intake. You might as well buy some of those "fuel saving" magnets, and one of the revolutionary "hydrogen" producing products. Or you could just send the money to my PayPal and I will put it to good use.

Seriously speaking, do not waste your money on that filth... look at it and tell me what about it could possibly improve the fuel economy in your car?
If you want to save fuel either:
1. Drive slower
2. Make sure that your car is fully maintained and tuned up
3. Make sure your tyres are properly inflated
4. do not drive an S80 haha

K&N and tornado are 2 different things that are not the same. One is a long term filter which lets your motor breathe better than a stock one while still grabbing harmful particles with the oil on it... Has been proven over and over by countless race teams, magazine tests, dyno tets and even Consumer Reports gave it an "exellent buy".... The tornado has nothing to stand on and has also had a few claims against it by the FTC (federal trade comission)... I bet K&N doesnt have that!... So, if you are looking for something worth while, I would back K&N as I have used those filters on all my motorcycles and also vehicles... Don't waste your money on that, honestly!
