With using of K&N filter mileage wont be affected much. There are instances of slight improvement in performance of engine.

Due to an dirty air filter you may also face loss of power and pick-up. If thats the case then you need to replace the air filter. Air filters usually need replacement once in a year depending upon environment dust conditons and usage of your car. Do not try to clean the air filters with water as it may not do the purpose of cleaning micro filters

In the manual sticker placed in my car, it's mentioned that for every 50K KMS or as & when required i can clean the air filter with K & N air filter kit & then further filter is to be rhinsed with water, dried properly & then to be soaked the filter in K & N oil.
I am planning to do so but my friend is advising me to change the filter to normal one as as per him the filter is only reducing my milage.

Hi Swapnil,

K & N filters last long if maintained well, they last for almost 10 times of a normal filter. When it comes to maintenance you will have to follow the process defined by K & N using their cleaning kit.
