    Without getting off topic and getting into an air filter debacle....

    @Unchained 5150, when you get a chance PM your reason for NOT using oiled type filters. Meanwhile I will try searching and researching.

    Thanks

    short and simple....... U know shits backwards when the manufacturer says, "as it gets dirty, it filters better"...... That means they can't make a filter actually filter worth a fuck

    Actually that can be said about any air filter, as they capture dirty the pores get filled and it filters better.

    I have 50K on an oem filter right now with excellent mpg.

    So we should never buy new filters, and the dealership should sell used filters

    Stick with OEM. Change more often to get maximum air flow.

    K&N makes a decent one you can clean and reuse (what I have). Not sure about the whole oiling business though (I believe you have to oil the K&N ones). I'm no connoisseur when it comes to cars though.

    This topic brings out all of the self proclaimed air filtration experts. Actually, it's quite interesting how well some of them articulate their positions, citing anecdotal evidence, that the amount of particulates passing through a cotton gauze air filter can and will cause some sort of catastrophic engine failure. With the millions of these style filters sold every years, I'm surprised that the roads aren't littered with cars whose engine have self destructed because of the amount of dirt being ingested through the filter. LOL
