What types of Orlando motor oil are available to you?
There are four basic types of motor oil:
- Regular or conventional
- Synthetic Blend
- High Mileage
Each serves a different purpose, and your car's owner's manual will tell you if you require a particular type for the best performance. We're explaining each of these Orlando motor oils to help you decipher which one you should put under the hood!
- Regular or conventional oil is exactly what is sounds like. It's the most basic type of motor oil and a lot of drivers like it because it's affordable. However, some drivers prefer not to use it (instead choosing synthetic oil, which we'll get to) because it has a shorter lifespan, causing you to need more frequent oil changes in Orlando. It also has a tendency to leave behind deposits because it's in its natural state, which can dirty your engine. However, if you have a "routine" drive time that's mostly around-town errands, this type of Orlando motor oil should get the job done!
- Synthetic oil is just that - synthetic. It's more expensive than conventional, but this type of motor oil actually has a longer lifespan and some claim that it provides a better performance. It's created in a lab, and it's designed to offer better protection from heat, better cleansing properties, and an overall more efficient performance. If you put your car through a lot of wear and tear or drive a high-performance car, this type of oil might be a solid bet for you!
- Synthetic blend oil is a blend of conventional and synthetic. It's cheaper than straight synthetic, but still offers a long life and less buildup (not to mention better protection from heat). This is a great option for drivers who tow or carry heavy loads, and it's not going to cost you as much as synthetic oil but will still give you a little more oomph than conventional oil.
- High Mileage oil is for cars that are in their "golden years" - i.e., have a lot of miles on them. These cars have typically been put through the ringer in terms of performance. High-mileage oil helps prevent leaks, restore engine compression, and stop oil burn-off. You'll typically want to put this type of motor oil in a car with over 75,000 miles!
