​It’s easy to put off getting your car serviced!
To your untrained eye, it all seems fine – it’s not making any funny noises, conking out on the middle of the M1, and its still like it always has been when you start it in the morning.
As a general rule, you should book your car in for a professional service every six months or 10,000km (whichever comes first).

Forgetting to service your car could be an extraordinarily costly mistake.
There are plenty of things that can go wrong, and they may affect your hip pocket in subtle ways too.

Some may be surprised to learn that being slack with maintenance can negatively affect your fuel economy, and not just elevate the risk of mechanical failure.


Fluids, for example, need to be regularly checked and changed to avoid moisture building up or oil degrading in quality, which can see your engine seize up when you least want it to, or have your brake fluid boil and become ineffective



 

Did you know there different types of oil?

Not just for petrol and diesel engines, or the thickness, I mean what they are made for?

Synthetic Base Oils
Synthetic Base oils are made of either laboratory formed or crude oil that has undergone severe hydro processing to the stage where its chemical compound has been modified. Synthetic oil can also be a mixture of Group III, IV & V Synthetic types of oils.

Semi Synthetic Base Oils
These are a mixture of Mineral and Synthetic base oils. The mixture can vary by product and manufacturer. These base oils can also be called “Synthetic Enhanced”, “Synthetic Fortified” or other marketing names that imply better performance than a mineral base oil but may not meet the accepted industry criteria of a semi synthetic base oil.

Mineral Base Oils
Mineral base oils are made from refined crude oil. There are many levels of refinement available from solvent cleaned through to severe hydrocracking. Mineral oils can also be a mixture of the different grades of mineral oil.

 ​
Mineral base oils are very suitable for most engines and can be manufactured in specifications to suit most applications. They are particularly suitable for heavier viscosity grades or for engines such as rotaries where synthetic oil is not recommended.

Semi Synthetics base oils are the best of both worlds being a combination of both mineral and synthetic base oil. They can cover nearly all types of requirements and vehicle applications from the latest to the very old.

Synthetic base oils are also extremely versatile and are very suited to lower viscosity high protection, fuel efficient oils. The different types of synthetic oils provides different characteristics that can be engineered for a particular requirement.

So really, one is not better than the other as all 3 types have their distinct application strengths
