The Cyclone Fuel Saver is a device designed to boost fuel efficiency in most gasoline vehicles. The product is built to do this using a vortex. A vortex is the circular motion created by moving fluids. Water swirling down a sink drain is one common example of this principle. The Cyclone product harnesses this vortex motion with air instead of water.
The Cyclone fuel saver has no moving parts but is designed and shaped to influence airflow as it passes. The product fits inside the vehicle's air intake hose. This helps create an air vortex at the combustion chamber. In theory, the air vortex improves the atomization of gasoline and makes combustion more efficient when air mixes with fuel inside the chamber.
Because the Cyclone Fuel Saver is intended to increase combustion efficiency, it has several major advantages when working as intended. Horsepower can possibly be increased. Gas mileage can also be influenced by proper air mixture.
The product is marketed as an easy way to cut gas costs by increasing mileage per gallon. Increased MPG allows the driver to cover more mileage on a single tank of gas, potentially saving hundreds of dollars in fuel costs over time.
On average, customers who reported favorable use of the Cyclone product claim an increase of 1 or 2 miles per gallon. Other customers report a more dramatic increase of 3 or 4 miles per gallon. Because of variations in vehicle design and actual use, real-world numbers and results vary.
The Vortec Cyclone product is designed to be installed easily in several minutes. The device should be placed into the hose of the air intake, which connects the air filter box and throttle body of the engine.
This area can be accessed under the hood with basic tools. Once the Vortec Cyclone has been securely placed, it should not need to be adjusted or maintained and can remain in place for the lifetime of the product.
