At best I've seen 1 MPG increase in over 6 cars that I have installed the K&N filter.

The advantage to me is reusability.

Just the filter or their cold air set up?

In my unprofessional opinion hot air setup gives the best MPG since the engine does not have to work at heating up the air to operating temperature.

so you were talking about 1 MPG from the filter alone?

I have just recently swapped out the stock paper filter for the K&N flat replacement filter. I gained 1mpg from that swap. I am now looking into a CAI, leaning toward the Airaid 250-243 club deal offered by JDP Motorsports.
