Default Weird?

The gasket that goes between my air intake and the throttle body was broke, so it was leaking a ton of air, so I put a new one on and now I can't hear the whistle of leaking air, but now it seems like I get a little less MPG.

Could be. Motor isn't getting as much air now. Give it couple hundred miles and it should even out.

No, because I fixed the leak, it's getting all the air now. A lot more than before. But i also cleaned my k&n filter, so that's giving it more air to.

I don't know, maybe a couple hundred miles and it will get better.
