Excellent gas milage

Just wanted to share this. Recently I changed my air filter (3.6L) to a K & N drop in and went full synthetic. I drove 140 hi-way miles yesterday, cruise control set at 69 -70 mph. I was getting 26.9 MPG at one point it went over 27. Before I made these two changes my gas mileage was 24 to 25 mpg.

Re: Excellent gas milage

I too went full synthetic right after I bought my JGC V8 and a little later, I installed an AFE dry filter. I'm getting 20+ mpg in mixed city/highway driving. I have a 'soft' foot.

Excellent gas milage

AEM dry vs AFE dry filter drop in? Which is better? I hear great things about both but can't decide.

I want to stay away from oiled filters like the k&n

Re: Excellent gas milage

I have been tempted on getting a higher flow filter like K&N but after reading a test report and seeing the below graph and test reports, I immediately scratched off KN. AFE and AEM seem like better choices.

Re: Excellent gas milage

Great info. I was considering a CAI but think that putting in a drop in makes more sense for me.

Re: Excellent gas milage

Do these dry filters like AEM make any difference at all??
