Air Filter


Recommended Posts

Just a quick question

Ref the K&N Life time Filter, replacement for std stock air filter

Is it worth Buying one before i shell out £40.00 on one

and if so will i notice any difference to acceleration or not or is it just a sales ploy :blink:

Cheers Matt

with the filter and an ECU reset I get 50 miles more per tank, thats only the results after one tank of fuel, but it does seem to make a difference to the fuel economy. Worth £40 imo.

:offtopic: Pirate Pete, just out of curisity what MPG are you getting ? and are you Manual or Auto please ?

When last run I got 320 miles before the light came on, mainly town driving. I changed the filter halfway though and reset the ECU. So I'll see what I get this time round. Mind you I have been using the Lexus to get to work this week as the old Rover (my vehicle to get to work), has started to rebel cos it sits on the drive all weekend while the lexus gets my attention, the clutch cable went in a spectacular fashion on Monday within 5 minute of the front exhaust box starting to blow. It knows its days are numbered I suspect.

I'm toying with the idea of getting Denso iridium sparkplugs to see if that can improve the fuel economy, mind you they were only changed 12k miles ago, and I don't know whether that would make any real difference.

BTW i'm driving a manual sport version
