How's the Mann FP-26-009 Ferocious Plus Series prevent mildew smell if all the nasty stuff come from the ac evaporator? The air flow is like
Fresh/recec air ️ cabin filter ️ blower motor ️ evaporator ️ inside cabin!

What I can say is that during these recent CA fires in the Bay Area, when the smoke drifted south to where I live, I never smelled the smoke inside my car with that filter and there was a couple times where I forgot to turn on recirculate.

This filter is great. I used to smell mildew with the stock filter not too long after buying the car. This filter has solved that problem thus far for me.

+100 on the Mann FP-26-009 Ferocious Plus Series. My first one lasted just over 17k. now that I put a new one in I hardly smell anything from the outside. Best filter I've ever used. To make my filters last a bit long i put the 2 air filter on the outside to pre-filter debris.
