I would not expect any mpg gain as 99% of the time the throttle will be providing resistance to limit airflow into engine anyway so reducing the resistance with a K&N only means the throttle needs to be closed more so the net resistance will be the same. Lower resistance does, however, permit higher max power and higher power at all rpm's at max throttle...
