I expect that to work on the playa in a dust storm about as well as a rainfly keeps dust out of tents with mesh windows.
YMMV,IANAL, I didn't stay at a holiday inn express last night, etc. That said, I do work on cars as what passes for a living these days.

Dont bother swapping them as you enter/leave, unless you have a K&N to begin with. Just get a replacement and switch it out.
Once you arrive, unless you turn the car on and off, the dust wont be a problem for the engine.

But if your covering is on the outside, you have to tape completely around every edge with the wide tape, 1 1/2" or 2" as Mr Canoe notes, to keep the wind from getting under it and tearing it.
