K&N gas mileage

at 800miles, my mpg, at 65mph, would read 19-20mpg. after K&N drop in, it reads 24.4 mpg. 1000 miles. anyone else see similar improvements. the throttle response is just better.

Are you using a Cold Air Intake Kit or the Drop in Filter. I haven't be able to decide which I wanted to buy.

I certainly like the results, since I get around 15mpg in the city and 21 on the highway in the automatic.

Thanks for the info
