Conventional Motor Oil


motor oil

It’s recommended to use high-mileage oil for any vehicle with over 75 000 miles, regardless of the vehicle’s age. It’s important to keep up-to-date on maintenance inspections on your vehicle, as the further a car or truck is driven, the more likely engine, performance, and maintenance issues arise.

When to use Conventional Motor Oil

Conventional oil is the standard for many vehicles on the road, and it’s important to refer to your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations when deciding which type of oil is best. Its primary purpose is to lubricate engine components and to prevent wear as different parts come into contact with each other during vehicle operation. This is why it’s important to use the appropriate oil for your vehicle.

When to consider Synthetic Motor Oil over Conventional

More often vehicle manufacturers are recommending synthetic or synthetic blends of motor oil over conventional. There are a variety of benefits to choosing synthetic, as there are fewer impurities that could get left behind on your engine components. It’s important to consider how diligent you are in regards to getting your oil changed when you need to. If you tend to be a little forgetful (it’s easy with how busy life gets), it may be wise to consider synthetic.
