Why should I change my oil every six months?
Oil degradation is inevitable in a stationary engine that runs outside. Condensation and contaminant build-up will occur due to the highly variable temperature and humidity changes in New England. We offer a free no-cost oil analysis of the oil in your standby generator. The samples below are of the initial clean oil placed during our routine preventative maintenance services, and a sample after just 6 months. Sample One is clean, bright, semi-transparent- what clean oil should look like. Sample Two is cloudy and murky- contaminated by environmental condensation and particles.
