Does Your Engine Oil Match Your Driving Environment?

Have you ever noticed that your vehicle's performance may change depending on whether it is hot or cold outside? There is a sound and logical reason for this to happen. Oil is a key component determining how efficient your engine performs, and knowing what oil viscosity ratings mean will help you maintain efficiency in all weather conditions.

When you see the label on a bottle of oil, it is providing you with a lot of necessary information. Let's take 5W-30 for example. The W refers to winter. The 5 refers to the maximum low-temperature viscosity and the 30 refers to the maximum high-temperature viscosity. This information is necessary to make adjustments when seasons change.
