I did not watch the video I had 1st hand experience with that K&N garbage on my Corvette. Like an idiot I bought one and the cleaning kit after 3 months I threw that garbage away. Stay with the good old paper filters and you are good to go.

I merged your two similar videos and placed them in the Video Showroom.

Lol@BMW owners running their cars out of fuel. I'm sure the fuel pump just loves that. Super-scientific testing.

I run K&N filters almost exclusively in all of my vehicles. YMMV.

You heard it kiddos, an air filter is the ultimate factor in determining MPG's.

There are a few 'OEM only' kinda guys. They all post non-Focus related data and don't have anything to say about Focus-related arguing points.

The lazy guy has 1 in 11 that liked his video...

Makes since Dyn085. lol Some OEM stuff is the way to go... but not everything that is made OEM is "the best." I have a K&N Drop-in filter in my car with the cleaning kit thing. Never had any problems.
