I think ALL of the energy radiates, less the coax and tuner IR losses. If the 
RF doesn't radiate, tell me where the energy goes.

Guys think about what you are saying SWR 8:1 !!   So what does the tuner
do?  , tune the antenna ?  or Presents a match for the radio to operate ?
If you tune an antenna and have an SWR of 8:1  how much do you think
radiates ?

The bottom line here is that just because you have a tuner does not mean you
have efficiency.
Any good tuner will tune that windom,  but with SWRs over 3.5:1  your not
doing much to get a signal out.
