cheap @$$ air filter review

bought a cheap oem "knock off", air filter on ebay a while ago. thought i would give my two cents on it, in case any of y'all were planning on buying one.
here it is
first off, the plastic is a bit harder and i suppose you'd crack it if your not careful. the fit is very close but not perfect, i mean its nothing to worry about, it just fits like an aftermarket part. the oem honda filter element seems to be kind of a "cotton-paper" mesh, while this looks like the mesh is a bit tighter. secondly, after riding on it for a week, i've noticed an increase in gas consumption. with my old ratty oem filter i was able to get about 100 miles on the trip meter before the fuel light came on (not sure what everyone else's average is?) and that was in the city. this time the fuel light came on after only 70 miles!?!!? not sure if there is something else wrong with my bike right now that is causing this terrible gas mileage, but i'm pretty sure it's just the filter
