Choosing the Right Engine Oil for Your Vehicle

Getting your oil changed regularly is important. However, you also need to use the right kind of oil. If you walk down the oil aisle at an auto parts store, all the options can feel overwhelming. In this blog, you will learn about the various types of engine oil. Keep in mind that your owner’s manual should tell you what type of oil is best for your vehicle.

Conventional oil

This is the most common type of oil. It is made from refined petroleum or crude oil and is typically the most affordable. It does not perform as well in extreme temperatures.

Synthetic oil

Synthetic oil has been chemically engineered to have fewer impurities. It performs well at a wider temperature range and is ideal for turbocharged engines. However, it is more expensive than conventional oil.

Synthetic blend oil

As the name suggests, synthetic blend oil is a mixture of conventional and synthetic oil. This is a good choice if you are looking for superior performance but you aren’t ready to pay the full synthetic price.
