What is the best oil for your vehicle?

As the name suggests, this is a blend of synthetic and conventional oils. This oil is more reasonably priced than synthetic but it offers some of the same properties as a synthetic. Blends burn cleaner and can stand up to higher temperatures. This oil is recommended for vehicles that run at high speeds or carry heavy loads frequently.

Conventional Oil

Unless you ask for something different, conventional oil will most likely be used in your oil change. It’s the least expensive of all the options because it is much less expensive to produce. More frequent changes are required because it is deteriorates faster than synthetic oil. This oil is recommended for low mileage vehicles that are used for every day purposes like running errands and at normal speeds.

Synthetic Oil

Synthetic oil is made the most expensive type of motor oil because it is more expensive to make. It’s a man-made compound and not made from crude oil like conventional oil is. Synthetic is recommended for very cold climates. It keeps the engine cleaner and protects against ash build-up. It has a higher viscosity level which makes it flow better than conventional.

Synthetic Blend Oil

As the name suggests, this is a blend of synthetic and conventional oils. This oil is more reasonably priced than synthetic but it offers some of the same properties as a synthetic. Blends burn cleaner and can stand up to higher temperatures. This oil is recommended for vehicles that run at high speeds or carry heavy loads frequently.
