With so many options for your automobile, it may be difficult to choose which is preferable. Oil selections for your car are more than capacity and performance; they are about compatibility.

Synthetic oil is best for newer, high-performance cars that run with higher temperatures. Additionally synthetic is helpful for stop-and-go drivers in areas with extreme temperatures like Florida’s summer.

Conventional oils are better for vehicles with older engines that don’t run with the same intense temperatures as high-performance vehicles. Additionally, if you drive infrequently or only have short-distance trips, conventional oil may be a better option.
