  • Panel filter

    All,

    The time has come for my air filter to be changed and was thinking of going for a K&N or courts one insetead of the OE one.

    Does it effect the MPG??

    My mate put a K&N on his BMW and he says that it drinks fuel since fitting it??????

            i brought a courtney one at T.V.Live and fitted it there and then, ran down from staffordshire with original drove back with new one. not much difference in fuel M.P.G. did have a slight play with two cars though so that dropped it abit.lol. but it did seem to feel slightly more responsive on the pedal

                  Theres a report somewhere ( i dont have it to hand ) on the web that tested regular paper filters and cotton/oil based ones.

                  To cut a long story short, the expensive oil ones let more crap through and contaminate the oil than the paper ones.

                  It said there is no substitute for a regularly changed paper filter.
