Has anyone tried one of these fuel savers as advertised on TV?

Don't bother. It slows your incoming air down too much, and really isn't worth the $60 or whatever for some bent up metal/plastic.

They dont work, just blocks the air passages and makes things worse, especially with a super charger
Do a little search, has been debated before.

A couple of items have been hotly debated.

1. Stay away from Floz superchargers
2. No Tornado

I don't know if they've been "debated" at all.... If cheap things like these worked, manufacturers would have done them a long time ago.

3. Whether you should use a Bra on the front of a 2000+.

(I vote... bad idea)
