I suspect it would depend on the individual service department... just a little cautious.

I see your concerns and counter with the following:

But seriously, to void the warranty they have to show cause and effect, I think they would be hard pressed to prove that a filter, same as on the oil and fuel created harm. The vapor is still circulating through the system, just not dirty. I will find out tomorrow though, going to the Dealer for an oil change so I will just ask. I have a feeling they are going to be more interested in the Air Grabber than the are the can
