Engine Performance

Getting a regular oil change for your car ensures that your car’s engine will stay properly lubricated and help reduce the amount of heat produced by the engine. A regular oil change will also help keep your engine free of dirt and debris which can cause your engine to run more slowly. In short, you can keep your engine performing better with regular oil changes.

Better Gas Mileage

With your engine performing at its best because of your regular oil changes, you can expect to get better gas mileage as a result. Friction caused by old oil can cause your engine to slow down and be less efficient when it comes to travel.

Fewer Harmful Emissions

Another reason to make sure you’re changing your oil regularly is that it can help reduce harmful emissions being produced. Fresh oil doesn’t burn the same as old oil, so keeping your engine oil fresh and scheduling regular oil changes can actually help the environment.
