Welcome aboard.
In my experience, K&N air filters pass too much dirt through the engine (I live on a dirt road), and make no difference in fuel economy.
And also in my experience, mufflers make no noticeable difference in fuel economy.
Same goes for fuel additives.
The things that make the biggest difference in fuel economy are adjustments to the commuting route, and adjustments to "the nut behind the steering wheel".
