In order to preserve the proper operation and durability of your engine, changing the engine oil is a crucial component of diesel engine maintenance. Depending on the type of oil used, the driving environment, and the manufacturer's recommendations, the frequency of oil changes may vary. For mineral-based and semi-synthetic engine oils, modern lubricants have increased the number of kilometres and time intervals between oil changes from the conventional 5,000km to as much as 10,000km. However, It's important to consult your engine owner's manual for the manufacturer's specific recommendations, as they may vary based on the type of oil used, the engine design, and other factors. Regular oil changes help maintain engine performance, lubrication, and overall longevity.

Semi Syntheitc and Mineral based oils each have there different advantages, below is a list of each type:

  1. Mineral-Based Oils:

    • Cost-Effective: Mineral-based oils are generally more affordable to produce, making them a budget-friendly option for customers who prioritize cost-effectiveness.
    • Basic Protection: These oils provide essential lubrication and protection for everyday driving conditions, making them suitable for regular commuting and moderate engine demands.
    • Wide Compatibility: Mineral-based oils are compatible with most older engines and vehicles, making them a suitable choice for classic and vintage cars.
  2. Semi-Synthetic-Based Oils:

    • Enhanced Performance: Semi-synthetic oils combine the benefits of mineral and synthetic oils, offering better performance and protection compared to pure mineral oils. They provide improved engine cleanliness, reduced wear, and better temperature stability.
    • Fuel Efficiency: Semi-synthetic oils often have lower friction and better viscosity control, contributing to improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.
    • Versatility: These oils can be used in a wide range of vehicles, including those with modern engines, turbochargers, and direct injection systems.
    • Extended Drain Intervals: Semi-synthetic oils typically have longer recommended oil change intervals compared to mineral oils, which can reduce maintenance frequency and costs.
