All about ... oil
After how much time should I change the oil of my scooter or moped?
Changing oil depends on several factors such as the make and model of your scooter, the quality of the oil, the amount of use and environmental conditions. In general, it is recommended to change the oil every 5,000 to 8,000 km or every year, depending on use.
What types of oil is best to use throughout the year?
The type of oil you should use for your scooter depends on several factors, including your scooter's make, model and engine type. It is best to consult the manufacturer's specifications and recommendations to determine which type of oil is best for your scooter. Below are some common types of oil:
Mineral oil: This is the most affordable option and is often used for small scooters.
Synthetic oil: This type of oil is more expensive, but offers better performance and protection under extreme conditions.
Semi-synthetic oil: This is a mixture of mineral and synthetic oil and offers a good balance between price and performance.
After how much time does motor oil become corrosive?
The rate at which motor oil becomes corrosive depends on several factors such as the quality of the oil, the environment in which the scooter is stored, and the time the oil has been without movement. It is generally believed that oil can become corrosive after about a year without movement and under poor storage conditions (high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc.). However, this is only a guideline and it is important to follow the manufacturer's specifications and recommendations for your specific scooter model and type of oil. Changing oil regularly, even if the scooter is not used much, is the best way to prevent the oil from becoming corrosive.
It is always best to follow the manufacturer's specifications and recommendations for changing oil for your specific scooter model.
