Choosing a motor oil can be confusing. However, all of the information you need to make an informed decision can be found in two places: the vehicle’s owner’s manual and the label on the bottle of oil.
The people that designed and built your car know what oil will maximize the vehicle’s performance and they share that with you in the owner’s manual. Armed with that information, the label on the bottle will tell you everything else you need to know. But, if you feel like the label is written in a foreign language, the “Motor Oil Basics” will help decipher what it all means and give you confidence the next time you buy oil.
