Check your vehicle’s handbook for the minimum oil quality specification and viscosity grade, but you may wish to choose a better one. Choosing the right oil depends on:
- Car type – a high performance car needs higher performance oil.
- Car age – engines are constantly improving with newer ones giving a high performance with better fuel efficiency. Advanced oils have been developed to help keep up with these increased engineering demands.
- Driving environment – None of us are keen on stop-start traffic, and neither is your engine. Using the higher quality oils available will help prevent the onset of engine wear and tear.
