Default DIY Carbon enhanced cabin air filter.

A couple of nights ago I had to change out the prefilter on my home's HEPA filter and had some left over material. I cut the leftover prefilter to size and used frog tape to stick it to the top of the cabin air filter. There is more than enough clearance, doesn't seem to restrict airflow, and really helps with diesel fumes while stuck in traffic.

This is the prefilter material that I used:
Amazon.com - Honeywell Premium Odor-Reducing Air Purifier Replacement Pre-Filter, HRF-APP1 / Filter (A) - Hepa PrefilterAmazon.com - Honeywell Premium Odor-Reducing Air Purifier Replacement Pre-Filter, HRF-APP1 / Filter (A) - Hepa Prefilter

This is the cabin filter that I used:
Amazon.com: Wix 24030 Cabin Air Filter: AutomotiveAmazon.com: Wix 24030 Cabin Air Filter: Automotive

My solution to diesel fumes is to put the ventilation system into Recirculate mode until I'm not behind the truck anymore.

I do the same but occasionally I'll be at a light and don't realize that a pickup-truck is a diesel until they accelerate and the exhaust fumes are already coming in. This prefilter seems to take the edge off it significantly.
