At its most basic level, oil is oil and it all comes out of the ground. There are different weights or thicknesses for certain types of engines or weather, and there are other adjustments made to oil for different reasons. Here are the kinds of oil you may choose from.
Conventional oil, or traditional oil, is a more basic oil with not as much treatment. It still has some additives and conditioning, but it is the same oil that has been used for over 100 years in cars around the world. It is cheaper but you have to change it more often. There are reasons to choose this oil.
Semi-synthetic oil is a cross between the two, trying to get the best of both worlds. It is conventional oil with a little full-synthetic oil added to the mix.
Full synthetic oil is the most advanced with a lot of tweaking to make it as good as possible. Most new cars need full synthetic oil. It works better in extremes, lasts longer and is not as bad for the environment. It does cost more, however.
The oil keeps your engine lubricated, preventing metal from rubbing against metal. This allows your engine to operate efficiently. Any oil will wear down eventually and not be as effective. This means your engine has to work harder, and that wears out the engine faster. Eventually, the oil will not lubricate at all and you will soon have engine failure if the oil is not changed, requiring you to replace engine parts. Follow your owner’s manual’s suggestion for when to get the oil changed.
