This is a discussion on 2013 WRX low mpg after intake filter change + oil change within the Everyday Impreza Talk forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; Originally Posted by Amg14 i have a scangauge in my car and when i bought my wrx i was getting ...
Goldstein is a ****ing joke; they are the worst dealership in the area. You're far better off with Capitaland. Honestly, for an oil change / air filter replacement, just DIY (keep receipts and take picture of odometer with them)...any needed tools will pay for themselves pretty much after the first or second interval. If you're without location to be able to do said job, go on the UNYSOC site; great group of guys, and I'm sure someone would let you use their garage if you buy them a 6er.
That said, the winter blend of gas will drop your MPGs a bit.

Now I'm not happy to hear that about Goldstein . Figured that a dealership that offered a lifetime power train warranty would want to do everything in their power to upkeep the vehicles to the best of their ability to lessen the risk of having to warranty something down the road.
Winter fuel and lower temps.... my car does the same
Unfiltered air will not cause a drop in mpg's, just more wear on the engine over the long run.
You can't have everything - where would you put it?
My apologies if I missed it but did you hand-calculate the MPG or go by the onboard MPG reading?
I'm waiting until the 3rd to check my intake filter that's when I get back to Albany from winter break, will keep everyone posted. If I see the intake filter wasn't put on properly...I'll be damn sure to post some pics.
