Every Huntington Beach car owner who has taken their car in for an oil change has been told that their engine air filter’s dirty.

So between your owner’s manual and your Fountain Valley technician’s inspection there’s really no guesswork involved for Huntington Beach auto owners.
Now, most air filters purchased in Huntington Beach, Westminster, Garden Grove, or Costa Mesa don’t cost a lot to replace. It’s just that California people hate getting caught with an unexpected expense. On the plus side, though, changing a dirty air filter at Beach Benz can often save enough on gas to pay for itself before your next oil change in Huntington Beach.
Think about a dirty furnace filter in your Huntington Beach home. When it’s all clogged up, enough clean air can’t get through. In your sedan, 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 California gas to move your vehicle around Fountain Valley roads.
Your sedan actually needs about 12,000 gallons of air for every gallon of gas it burns. Engine air filters don’t cost much in Huntington Beach at Beach Benz. When it’s time to change yours, just get it done. You’ll get better fuel efficiency, have better performance and protect your sedan engine.
