This Is The Type Of Engine Oil That's Appropriate For Your Car

There are 3 main types of engine oil that can be used in your car.

  • Fully synthetic engine oil
  • Semi synthetic engine oil
  • Traditional mineral based engine oil

Fully synthetic engine oil is essentially artificially made. Its purpose is to last longer than conventional oil before the components break down. This means that the oil life span will last longer between engine oil changes. Another advantage is that fully synthetic oils withstand higher and lower temperatures better than convention engine oils by retaining its original structure in extremes, therefore reducing engine wear. The disadvantage with fully synthetic engine oil is it is significantly more expensive than semi synthetic and traditional engine oils.

Semi synthetic engine oil is a combination of fully synthetic and traditional engine oil. Semi synthetic offers many of the advantages of fully synthetic but at a lower cost.

Traditional engine oil is the original mineral based engine oil that has been refined.
