Last night I changed the plugs on the car and noticed the filter looked horrible. I thought back to the last time I had cleaned it, and I'm embarrased to say this, but I can't even remember when the last time was.

My car is pretty much a DD. I drive it 80% of the time unless the weather is bad. I put about 8000 miles on the car each year.

I just wanted to get an idea of how often you guys with K&N's that put similiar miles on your car clean and oil your filters.

Thanks.

Exactly. I don't have much of a time frame just when it looks like it needs it. I just use the K&N filter recharge kit even though I'm not running a K&N. It works pretty good, no complaints.

Even K&N says that dirt help their filters. I only clean mine after every 10K or so. That's if it looks dirty.

10k and it still doesn't look dirty enough for me to bother.

I usually just need to add a little bit of oil to the top side of the filter before it needs to be cleaned. I'll shake it and pat any loose dirt out of the filter before I add any extra oil.
