A new air filter and fuel filter will help performance. With EFI engines, an aging filter will cause poor performance. On a carbureted engine, a dirty filter means a rich, fuel-hungry air-fuel ratio--like leaving the choke partially on. A paper filter cleans very well, but it will clog quickly if you drive on dusty, alkaline trails. For fuel efficiency, check the air filter often.
