Your vehicle's engine contains lots of moving metal components that would be damaged by friction if left to their own devices. This is where engine oil comes in: it serves as a lubricant to protect these parts. But oil doesn't last forever: both time and mileage can cause oil to begin to break down. This is why oil changes are necessary. When you come to Briggs of Fort Scott for an oil change, our technicians will drain the old oil from your vehicle, replacing it with new manufacturer-approved oil. Doing this regularly will protect your vehicle's engine from the damage caused by old oil.
Conventional oil is a standard mineral oil used for engines, while synthetic oil is synthesized to be superior. It lasts longer than conventional oil, helps keep your engine cleaner, can stand up to extreme temperatures better, and decreases engine wear. However, it also does cost notably more.
Semi-synthetic oil is a mixture of conventional mineral oil and synthetic oil. Semi-synthetic oil doesn't cost as much as full synthetic oil, but it still retains some of synthetic oil's benefits over conventional oil. It's not as good as full synthetic, but it's a better choice than mineral oil.
Different companies make semi-synthetic oil differently, with varying mixtures. Because of this, it's always best to choose manufacturer-approved semi-synthetic oil -- and this is what you will find at Briggs of Fort Scott. Not only do we use manufacturer-approved oil, but we will also use OEM oil filters to ensure that your vehicle's engine stays in good condition.
