Choosing the Right Oil


The various types of motor oil on the market are designed for different purposes. With so much depending on your oils performance, it’s important to select the right oil for your engine’s needs. The API(American Petroleum Institute) Mark identifies oils which have passed a comprehensive series of performance tests and product quality audits. It also represents the level of technology used for the formulation of the stated lubricant. These tests verify the ability of the oil to perform virtually every task expected of it in your engine. Which includes, minimizing engine wear& tear, preventing corrosion and the build-up of deposits. 


By choosing oil with the API Certification mark, you actually are extending the life of your engine, reducing the chance of engine failure, and helping it maintain emission standards to fight pollution.


To choose the proper type of oil for your vehicle, you need to understand the significance of the oil additives, viscosity ratings, and classification codes.




•        Oil additives: To help the oil keep your engine cool, clean, and corrosion-free, refiners blend in various additives, which can account for as much as 25 percent of the cost of the oil.


•        Viscosity ratings: Oil is rated and identified by its viscosity, which determines its ability to flow.



Two types of oil are on the market: single-viscosity oil and multi-viscosity oil.


Almost every vehicle is designed to run on multi-viscosity oil. The lower the number, the thinner the oil and the more easily it flows. In 10W-40 oil, for example, the two numbers mean that it’s a multi-viscosity oil. The 10W is an index that refers to how the oil flows at low temperatures (in winter); 40 refer to how it flows at high temperatures.


To find out which viscosity to choose for your vehicle, look in your owner’s manual for an oil viscosity chart.


•        Oil classification codes: The starburst symbol on an oil container label means that the oil meets the current engine protection standard and fuel economy requirements of the International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC), a joint effort of U.S. and Japanese automobile manufacturers.
