So between your owner’s manual and your Tampa technician’s inspection there’s really no guesswork involved.

Now, most air filters purchased in Dade City, Wesley Chapel, or Eastern Pasco County don’t cost a lot to replace. It’s just that Florida people hate getting caught with an unexpected expense. On the plus side, though, changing a dirty air filter at Bob’s Auto Repair can often save enough on gas to pay for itself before your next oil change in Tampa.

Think about a dirty furnace filter in your Wesley Chapel home. When it’s all clogged up, enough clean air can’t get through. In your American made car, that means that your engine can’t get as much air as it needs to burn the fuel efficiently. So it makes do with less air and has to use more expensive Florida gas to move your vehicle around Tampa roads.

Your American made car actually needs about 12,000 gallons of air for every gallon of gas it burns. Engine air filters don’t cost much in Zephyrhills at Bob’s Auto Repair. When it’s time to change yours, just get it done. You’ll buy less fuel, have better performance and protect your engine.
