Yeah, I should have been more clear - I wasn't challenging their flow claims. Those aren't hard to believe.

I'ts just the MPG testimonials that make me bristle. One of my big pet peeves is claims made with no sound data to back them up.

But you've also got a point on the warranty. There's something to be said for reusing a K&N filter for the life of a vehicle instead of throwing away another OEM style filter every NNN miles.
