I installed the filter in a 2002 mercury cougar (V6) While the MPG barely went up (from 29 to 31-32) the acceleration boost is somewhat more noticeable. I figured that this filter will pay for itself even with such little differences. Here's how it breaks down: say i put on 50000 miles until i get rid of the car. if i get 29 MPG then i pay for 1724 gallons of gas; if i get 31.5 MPG then i pay for 1587 gallons of gas. The difference is 137 gallons at $2.80 (conservative) it is $383.60 - way more than i payed for this filter. Add in the boosts of acceleration and you have yourself a great deal.
