Whether you’re looking for better performance or improved reliability in your engine, it’s essential that you get your oil right. Using the correct oil keeps your engine running smoothly. Primarily, oil stops the metal surfaces in your engine from grinding together and wearing, by creating a separating oil film between them. The oil also disperses heat and reduces wear, protecting the engine. On top of this, good oil prevents dirt build-up and deposits by keeping them in suspension. Motor oil even protects against sludge and fights oxidation, keeping the oil fresh and minimising acids which can cause corrosion. In short, oil matters.
