Default Fuel Maximizer?

I emailed this guy on craigslist about his post. He posted a "2000 ranger 2.5 fuel maximizer". Me having a 2.5, i was curious about what was up. I emailed him and asked if it was one of those tornado fan things that you put in your intake and its supposed to make a cyclone or some crap. He told me it's a box with wires coming out of it and it hooks into my air flow sensor and it takes about a week for my truck to save gas and gain horsepower. I know this is complete b.s but does anyone have one of these? They legit?

I think I know what you are talking about. You can find them on Ebay it is a resistor you plug into your sensor to make your car think the air temperature is colder than it is, the car will put more fuel into fix it. In the end you lose fuel economy, this is what I was told by many people who tried it. I don't know much about the tornado it might work, But I have never tried it.

totally bogus, they dont work, just like the tornadoes, and the tornadoes can actually create more air flow resistance in the intake creating a potential loss of power, these things were designed for ignorant people with no knowledge of cars...

jus run pure hydrogen gas into the intake and run on an empty gas tank. save lots on gasoline but rack up a big hydrogen gas bill.
