Has any one tried this gizmo thats advertised on speed channel? Any luck with other products out there? Gas is back up to 1.60 a gallon here in San Diego and rising.

Unfortunately my work requires I drive about 100 miles a day on average, so even a small improvment would eventully add up. I drive a toyota tundra 4x4 which gets about 14 mpg now . If I could get it up to 16 or 17 I'd be happier.
Basil... what mileage does your E type get? or as they say " If you have to ask , you can't afford it" graemlins/nopity.gif

I've heard that most of the time, the "improvement" those sorts of devices make is pretty minimal. I've no hard facts about the Tornado, except that I vaguely recall a thread about it over at Miata.net. I'm a rather old fashioned person, so when the gas prices get high, I usually just drive a bit more sedately, or ride a bike. Just my .02

Well, if memory serves (it been a while since my E was running), but if I drove normally, I would get about 20-22 MPG). I suspect your driving style and how much in town versus highway miles would make a difference.
