Incredible

I suppose this is going to yet another of my Berlingo DIY pet hates. Sad

Changing the air filter is what I am referring to - what a game!! Angry

Not done it yet and don't want to either. Big Grin

I am looking for a K&N filter which is fit it and leave it. Cool

K&N filters are NOT 'fit it and leave it' filters.
No air filters are that.

The closest you can get to that is the old oil-bath systems fitted to old diesels...
(I'm working on restoring an old Nuffield 343 that's been modified to mount an old backhoe system. And yeah, it has the oil bath)

I take your point but I don't do a great deal of miles per year and this is what interests me and I quote

" up to 50,000 miles between air filter cleaning. Not having to buy another air filter means the K&N filter is also environmentally friendly."

 I have had these on all my motors (bar a few) but on this motor the fuss and performance needed to change the filter makes me want to get one all the more. Wink

50,000 would last me about 10 years!

K&N filters are a gimmick.

I think you will find that K&N filters need periodic servicing, which involves cleaning and re-proofing with K&N products, which work out quite expensive.
Just stick to the normal filter, it will probably give you upwards of 20K, if not used in very dirty environment.

Nevermind the price. I would be worried about introducing extra dust to the engine.
