At G&S Autocare, doing things right is at the core of the entire staff. We go the extra mile when performing standard oil change services. Depending on the engine oil specification, most vehicles should have the oil and oil filter changed every 5000 to 7,500 KM’s depending on the oil type. Changing your oil is the service most performed on a vehicle. Choosing the right oil for your vehicle is determined by the make of your vehicle as well as the mileage of your engine. For this reason, we offer several oil change packages for you to choose from including synthetic and conventional motor oils..
Synthetic Oil vs. Conventional Motor Oil
Synthetic engine oil has become increasingly used for engines due to the advantages over convention oil. Synthetic oil is better on your engine and has fewer impurities. It can also go much longer than conventional or hybrid synthetic blend oils. If you typically use conventional oil, it is perfectly safe to switch to synthetic oils. Going from synthetic to conventional oil is also safe. As previously mentioned, synthetic blends are also an option. This is simply a blend of synthetic oil and conventional oil. Determining the oil type is based on preference and are both effective in prolonging the life of your engine .
