Just saw your thread for the first time. Very interesting place to say the least.


You've mentioned the sand in other threads and the damage it does. And I see the sand storms in the earlier pics here in your thread. There is a severe duty filter and intake for Ford Supderduty and my Excursion for your environement. Have you had to upgrade your air intake filter? Does anyone offer a severe duty filter upgrade like that for the E53 let alone the 4.8iS?

I have uparmored my lower intake grill with expanded aluminum and I use 1 layer of pantyhose pre-filter.

Do you see much blocked by your 'pre-filter'? Does that work pretty well?

Works good since on shutdown gravity drops most of the sand back down the intake tube and if I cross the empty quarter I add a 2nd pantyhose layer directly over the filter before long trips.

Had to look up the Empty Quarter. Is this span of land even less hospitable to infidels than Saudi Arabia? Looks like 310 miles of no fuel, cell service or law...?

It can be like that but I have a couple of Bedouin friends whose tribe is from that area and let me know where, when to avoid.

Not to mention that I regularly cruise at 200kph

I have to ask, at 200 kph what kind of mpg/kpl do you get? Reason I ask, given a full tank are you able to make the 310 mile trip?

TBH I haven't paid attention to the mileage but 200 km on the 1st 1/4 tank and 150 km on the next 1/4 after that...? That includes my city driving though.

It's more like a Ford fuel gauge (seems like) and even with the price hike last month fuel runs .43 cents a liter.

So when you hit a protester coming out of a Starbucks...

Just kidding, they don't allow protesters here
