    i changed mine to k&n
    i think they let more cleaner air through to your engine and more air means bigger bang which in theory more power more freely reving engine

    for mine before i got it i averaged 15-15.9mpg around town, since i changed it and changed the plugs i now get 16.5-17.1 mpg around town all depends how much the wife drives it as i think she has a heavy foot as its allways the lower mpg when she drives it for the day
    i know my mpg is low but i only drive 2 mile in morning and 2 mile in afternoon so the car doesnt have much time to warm up
