Put them at the top of the rating, maybe a little higher.
If you ever try pushing your truck on a level surface, then add 10 psi to the tires and try it again you'll feel the difference.

What difference would a filter make?
I did mention bellypanning, mostly overlooked.
Plenty of things to raise mileage, but most people don't want to spend money.
Not everyone is operating at the same level of sophistication.
What's your damage?
Don't think air drag or high compression can affect mileage?

The last car I took to the playa had such a well shrouded air intake, it inhaled no dust to the filter.
Unusually thorough design though.
I have a spare filter for the truck.
Same with plugs.
Every time I get a car, it has gaps twice the maximum.
I set them back to stock unless I've modified the ignition.
I went from platinum for the ranger to copper plugs for technical reasons.
I lean to setting gaps tighter than spec so they wear into spec.
I only index on modified engines.

The problem is that the "Jerseyest" ones are all from Staten Island!
