Change your oil regularly
The oil in your engine is the blood of your car. Pumping through your car, it keeps it alive. It’s responsible for lubricating various engine parts to avoid friction, overheating and wearing down. In short, your engine’s lifespan, ability to work efficiently and overall condition depends on your engine oil. The grade and the quality matters, but so does how often you change it.
There are three main grades of engine oil: synthetic, semi-synthetic and mineral. Each has its advantages and disadvantages that you will need to consider before choosing it. We help you do this, but here’s a rundown on the different types.
1.Mineral oils provide your car with the essential protection, but stops there. With a mineral oil your engine does not have full protection and doesn’t last long before it is in need of an oil change.
2.Semi-synthetic oils provide your engine with better protection than a mineral oil and don’t require oil changes as often as mineral oils do. This means you can keep each batch for longer. This type of oilis also known for reducing wear and tear even more than a regular mineral oils- up to three times more. That’s what we call value for your money.
3.Synthetic engine oils are perfect during colder months. They ensure quick circulation amongst the engine parts and enhance engine power and performance. This engine oil grade is considered as one of the best and gets the most out of engine between each oil change.
