Your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot of clean air. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At National Brake & Muffler in Griffin, we ensure you get the best air quality in your vehicle and explain the process of where this dirty air is going to our area drivers.
