Nice work. I never put much stock in K&N's air filter claims. I don't want to mess with oiling them or worry about them letting too much junk pass through the filter media either.
I don't boat much anymore so my Yak Racks live in the garage most of the time.
When our Quest only had ~4,000 miles we did a long road trip and put ~30,000 miles on it, hauling a canoe on top the whole way (78" bars).
When we got back home, the mpg went down for the next 4,000 miles.
It only went down a tenth, but for best mpg, don't drive in town.

I've had my Xterra for a few months now. 2007 S model, automatic, no mods, and the roof rack is on. I run 87 octane. My driving is mixed. I seem to average 19-20 at 60 mph. My work drive is on single lane highway with a few stops and occasional passing. I did a couple hour road trip on interstate and got 20.7 at 70 mph. My worst was 17.5, which was mostly in town.

Can you or anyone reply with a suggestion on filling up before this test?
ie. should i fill completely up or begin with half a tank?
midgrade or premium or bottom dollar fuel is advised?
I have a 2005 xterra and just recently replaced the cat converter. the vehicle is in great condition with no lights or issues other than its sure thirsty!
thanks for the consideration.
