Benefits of frequent oil changes
The increased frequency of oil changes promotes better engine performance and in turn allows for a smoother, quieter ride. Additionally, keeping oil changes on a regular schedule helps limit dirt and debris from building up and protects your engine’s vital components from harm.
The higher the quality of oil, the cleaner your engine will be. This also promotes better gas mileage by improving lubrication. New, clean oil also reduces friction that can slow down your engine and have you visiting the pump more often. Fresh oil is less likely to burn and better able to absorb particles, making your vehicle pollute less. Your vehicle will last much longer on the road if you get your oil changed regularly.
When should you get your oil changed?
The frequency for your oil changes vary greatly depending on the make and model of your vehicle and on the environment in which you drive. Your car’s owner’s manual will tell you exactly at what interval you should get your oil changed. If you are unsure of when you need your oil change, speak to one of our service advisers.
