Why should you change the air filter regularly?

Improved fuel economy. If the engine air filter gets clogged or dirty, it will restrict the air flowing into it. That means the air-to-fuel ratio is not within the manufacturer’s specifications; therefore, the engine will burn more fuel than required.

Longer engine life. Changing the engine air filter regularly will ensure that your car’s life is not shortened. Serious damage can be caused by dirt if it gets allowed into the engine combustion chamber. It is wiser to spend a few dollars on a new air filter than spend thousands on potential problems on top of spending more on the fuel pump.
