found some similar models selling on ebay, etc. However the MPG listed is 17 city to 22 highway. in a good week I average 14 mpg. What and /or how do I increase my gas mileage? I read about a product called "tornado", but after some googling I doubt it works. It would be nice to drive as far as possible especially now with the prices going up daily and if it can be done I'd really like to know. It is ROOKIE question and please no criticism, but after fueling up and forking over $87 yesterday, I decided to explore. Thanking you in advance. God Bless, Joe

Go with a K&N Air Intake and a chip programmer to improve MPG. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON A TORNADO!

Good luck squeezing economy out of our SBC 350...I have never seen any mileage gains from an air filter/air intake and an exhaut but good luck on that as well...I get 11-12 in mostly City driving...if you find something, please pass it along as I could use the bump in MPG as well...:D...take care buddy and be safe!

Congrats on your Escalade purchase. :) Really don't think you will see that kind of mileage, most owners of that year are getting 10-14 in the city and 15-18 on the highway. :)
