Car Oil Types

What are the Different Varieties of Car Oil?

Your vehicle utilizes oil inside its engine, and replacing this oil with a fresh variety is periodic maintenance that can benefit your vehicle and your vehicle's efficiency. There are a number of motor oil products that you can choose from when you come into Westway Ford for an oil change. Our certified technicians use the following criteria to determine what the best variety would be.

  • Amount of mileage on your vehicle
  • The age of your vehicle
  • The driving habits that you have
  • The weather where you drive most frequently
  • The recommendation outlined in your owner's manual

Full Synthetic Motor Oil

Optimal engine performance can be achieved with a high-quality full synthetic motor oil. The high level of lubrication that you can get from this product can protect your engine from temperature damage, oxidation, and sludge development. Many people find that switching to full synthetic motor oil helps them increase their fuel efficiency numbers. That makes the investment worthwhile, especially if you live in an area that has dramatically different weather throughout the year.

Synthetic Blend Motor Oil

A blend of synthetic oil along with conventional oil and additives can be used to protect your engine from oxidation and damage. It's pretty simple to make the switch over to a synthetic blend, and you'll save some money with this option.

Conventional Motor Oil

Conventional oil is frequently used for oil changes because of its benefits along with its affordability. Light driving in consistent climates is optimal if you're contemplating conventional motor oil.

High Mileage Motor Oil

Just because your odometer is creeping up towards the 75,000-mile mark doesn't mean that your vehicle is a lost cause when it comes to oil consumption and efficiency numbers. A high mileage motor oil can be used to reduce the risk of leaks within your engine. It also reduces your carbon footprint while increasing your overall efficiency numbers.
