I don't really agree with what they said just reported it hence the FWIW I
added at the end.

     Makes sense!  However, even thought it doesn't hurt fuel mileage in a
modern car, a partially restricted air filter will limit the TOTAL air flow
passing into the engine so it therefore limits the TOTAL power available
when you drive with "foot to the floor".

No Corvair content but to further throw dirt into the air, I read in
Consumer reports that changing air filters at regular intervals doesn't
really help fuel mileage since the computer takes the available air and
mixes it with fuel like nothing is wrong. Glad I read this AFTER I put the
K&N lifetime filter on my Suburban. FWIW.
