Guys, checked the air fulter today trying to sort a sudden drop in fuel consuption and noted the origan fiulter was Sh*&t. I am thinking of going to a unifilter ooli filter so I can wash and clean regularly rather than another Nissan one, What are your thoughts!! Are they as good as the original!!

Had dust made it through the filter?

If it was just dirty then I would say it's doing it's job and to replace it with another new one(Nissan)

Danger Will Robinson, Danger! Stick with the Nissan genuine filters, unless you want to trash your engine. Uni/Finer (and K&N) filters are the scourge of modern engines ie, they are utter crap. But if you do decide to go that way, do tell us of your experiences.

Cheers

Ray

It was doing it's job indeed, well and truly. I have given it some thought, the original also has a greater area available as well, simply because the flat round surface of the KN's etc whereas the original paper elements have the zig zag thus more surface to allow it to breath. Original it is!
