• Oil is the lifeblood of your engine
  • Premature engine failure can result from not changing your oil
  • Regular oil change cycles can be based on both time and /or mileage
  • Let us help you decide what best suits your vehicle

What does my engine oil do?

  • Your engine oil ensures the internal parts of your engine operate with maximum lubrication and minimum friction.
  • Contrary to popular belief to maximise the quality of your oil your service cycles should not be based solely on mileage.
  • The type of use your vehicle gets will best determine the cycles but the general rule of thumb is every 6 months or 10,000 k/ms
  • Your oil also contributes to keeping your engine at the right operating temperature and in doing so extends the life of your engine.

Why should I change my oil?

  • If you don’t change your engine oil many of the additives included with modern engine oils may separate or degrade resulting in major engine failure.
  • Short running of an engine can result in a much reduced life cycle of your engine oil compared to longer hot running.
  • Let our experts help determine the best cycle for you. We also provide an efficient reminder service to ensure these cycles are not overlooked.

What type of oil do I need?

  • There are many different grades of oil available these days but we will ensure the right grade and type specified for your vehicle is used
  • Diesel vehicles often also use different types of oil and it is essential the correct type is used
  • We use and recommend only the best oils and our expert staff all receive regular training and support to ensure we keep up with changes of product specification

A wise man once said:

“It is cheaper to change your oil than change your engine”
