Your vehicle's air filters can get clogged over time. Having a clogged air filter can lower your car's fuel efficiency. Replacing a dirty air filter can improve your gas mileage by as much as 10 percent.
You should change your air filter at the recommended interval. The interval is usually at every 12,000 miles, but still depends on the air and road conditions. Vehicles that are driven more on a gravel road than a highway, will have air filters that clog up a lot more quickly. It won't hurt to take your air filter out and check it every once in a while.
