Miles to Empty went up after CAI Install

Basically, I installed a Roush cold air intake and I had 55 miles to empty before I installed it, now I have 99 miles to empty; how do I go about fixing this? I'm sorry if someone has posted this already, butI searched and couldn't find anything on it!

Just restart your car and drive around a bit, it will go away after the car re-calibrates the MAF.

When you say to restart the car, do you mean resetting the computers too, or just turning the car off and starting it again?

I heard people say that it is best to disconnect the battery terminal prior to installation but I never did when I installed my Airaid. As far as the miles to empty issues goes, just drive it around and it will recallibrate. You may actually see a slight increase in MPG especially on long trips

I did disconnect the battery when installing it! That's why I'm so confused.

As in, start the car, drive it around for a bit, come back, and check the range computer again. Might take a bit of a trip like 30 minutes or so.

congrats for disconnecting thee battery. Look in your owners manual for idle relearn. Also the miles to empty works off your last 500 miles by disconnecting the batt it makes that angry.....I do mean it about disconnecting the battery better safe than sorry.
