Bad air out Dirk, good air in. Hyper-stressing over things that are beyond your control is well, wasted time and energy. You can make sure your CVT's get serviced on a regular basis. You do that and you'll be ahead of 99% of owners. Beyond that, there really isn't anything to be gained. I personally think that most of the wear happens in the CVT at stops and heavy traffic. The "Idle Neutral Logic" is basically useless when you understand the very limited set of circumstances in which it operates. Which is why I place my CVT in neutral manually at every stop where I'm stopped for more than about 10 seconds. The owners manual has verbage that also states in heavy traffic or extensive idling, place the transmission in neutral. So I do, my CVT has been great with 77K miles, no issues. I'm planning on doing both filters and fluid change at 100K.
