Also, Does the K&N FIPK help any towards fuel economy or does it worsen it? I would still love to get one just for that raw sound alone lol.
I think a lot of these engine cleaners are snake oil...but that's just my opinion. I swear by Shell and Sunoco fuels and I do use Lucas fuel treatment.
In my old TJ, I had a bolt come loose that ended up getting swallowed in through the intake and blowing the motor. I was an avid Shell and Sunoco user then and ran Lucas. I got to see the inside of this motor...it looked brand new in there. Hardly any carbon build up on the pistons, etc. That motor had 120k on it.
As for the FIPK, in theory, it should...but based on my experiences with them, they don't save any measureable amount of fuel. Don't buy it for fuel economy. Buy it for performance and that cool sound.
