This is just another test speed run #3 of my 2006 Nissan Frontier 0-60.
The truck is stock, with a K&N drop in air filter. This is an Automatic Crew Cab. I don't know what the time was exactly on this run, but it seems to be in the 7.5 second range.
K&N vs Stock Air Filter MPG Test
This is a comparison of fuel economy when using a factory air filter versus
a K&N air filter. All variables for the test were the same. The car was
run through the city in economy mode. Air conditioning and radio were off
during both runs and the test was run down the same route. My results were
reached using 1/4 of 98 octane gasoline and calculating my distance
traveled using the odometer. I started with an empty tank and then drove
as far as the vehicle would go. I know running out of gas is not good for
a car , but I wanted to see if K&N filters lived up to their claims of
improved gas mileage. I believe this video is solid proof that K&N filters
don't work. For further information on aftermarket air filters check out

I'm sorry, but I just can't recommend this thing. You're going to pay four
times the amount of a regular air filter but another 12.99 for the cleaning
kit that you have to replace anyway every so often. Plus it takes you all
this time to spray it down with the kit, rinse, WAIT WAIT for it to dry and
then spray it down again with the oil kit before you FINALLY put it back in
I'd rather just buy the cheap air filter, drop it in and be done with it in
5 minutes worth of work. Am I crazy?

Fram HP Series vs. K&N Oil filters
I cut open and compare a Fram HP4, Fram HP12 and a K&N HP2002 oil filter.
I have heard and seen alot of bad press on the regular fram oil filter's
but nothing on the HP series so I decided to check into it myself! You
might be suprised at the results.
