Handling lubricants correctly will protect your machine, your health and the environment. Here are a few important points:
- Change oil and filter in time
To avoid unnecessary wear and burnt piston rings you should respect the service intervals. It is economical to change the oil filter at the same time as you change oil. A new oil’s characteristics deteriorate quickly when an old filter is used. Old filters may get clogged causing engine damage.
- Maintain cleanliness
It is important to maintain cleanliness when filling oil, especially around the filler point. Carelessness is the major source of impurities that cause wear, erosion, corrosion and malfunctions.
