Gas mileage - one reason it's poor

I decided to check the air cleaner on my truck to see why I've lost about a mpg - 9.6 vs 10.6/7. I guess the resident beasties have had a nice nesting place this past winter, but at least it doesn't look quite as bad as what my tractor did last year.

That's part of an insulator from around the battery. I had already pulled the white piece out before I took the pictures

And for you folks that don't recall the tractor air cleaner complete with chipmunk body:

Yes, we are overrun with rodents - but my Havahart trap and a ride to the country works until the new batch arrives
