Which Motor Oil is the Best?

January 28th, 2018 by

When it comes to motor oil, there is little doubt that synthetic oil is the top of the line. Synthetic oil is formulated from specially chosen chemicals in a scientific laboratory to be the best quality motor lubricant possible.

While conventional oil will still get the job done in most cases, it will not hold up as well in high or low temperature conditions as synthetic oil. Synthetic oil will not freeze, burn off, or get as dirty as conventional oil. Many of the newest motors being manufactured are made with synthetic oil in mind.

You will definitely want to check out your manufacturer’s recommendations to see which type of oil is going to work best for your motor. Using conventional oil in a motor that is designed for synthetic oil will not only cause your new car’s warranty to be invalid, but it can also cause you some major vehicle problems down the road.
