There are many types of oil on the market and it can be overwhelming trying to determine what oil your vehicle requires. The main three types of oil are conventional, semi-synthetic, and synthetic.
Conventional oil is a petroleum based product and has been used for decades in vehicles. It is formulated to maintain viscosity, that is thickness, in extreme heat and extreme cold. However, over time conventional oils break down and they must be changed, along with the oil filter. The oil filter collects sediment and deposits that build up in the oil. It is imperative that the filter be changed as well.
Semi-synthetic oil has synthetic compounds added to the conventional petroleum based oil, which helps maintain viscosity and the integrity of the oil for longer.
Newer vehicles will often require full synthetic oils. These high performance oils maintain proper viscosity longer than conventional oil and perform better in tighter tolerances usually required in premium engines.
Regular oil changes help keep your engine and parts properly lubricated which is important for proper engine function. Going too long without an oil and filter change can result in engine degradation, reduced performance, and reduced engine life.
