K&N says that you can go up to 50,000miles before cleaning is required. Remember that is under normal drving conditions. I have been running K&N on all my pickups since I could drive. My rule is that if it looks dirty, clean it.

I change mine twice a year. In the spring after the farmers finished planting and in the fall after they are done picking the crops. Thats the only problem having farm fields all around you everything gets dusty really fast when they are out working in them.

I buy like $6.00 Motomaster ones, cause I live in the country I change mine about every 6,000Kms, or 12 weeks or so. By 10 weeks I can't usually clean it anymore.
