Fluctuatin mileage after CAI filter came off

Well thanks to colorado interstate i-25, i bottomed out. Few days later i find my car isnt giving the type of mileage it should. About 5 days later i take a peek into see that my CAI filter on my AEM CAI had popped out. Suxxxxxxxxxx i was lucky that i didnt suck any stones or leaves or what not. But any how i put it back on and it seemed fine, was hitting lift etc, no problem. Now everytime i go on a bump i am paranoid.

Anyway my question to you is, i guess i am still getting fluctuating mileage. i mean 12.79 gallons gave me about 370 miles but i believe in the past i was more close to 400 miles. This time around i think i wont get 370 miles

Do you think i need to get an oil=change, since it did suck in pure unfiltered air for a week? My filter looks cleans, its been ayear since i had it on, of which 3 months i never even drove, hardly have 15k miles since my CAI has been put on.

What do you'll think? If you'll think i need to do some thorough checks or take it to the dealer for more vigorous test, help me out here, i dont want nothing to go wrong with my celi.

Thanks for any inputs.
