Different oil types serve different purposes, so choosing the best one means understanding your vehicle's needs. Here's a breakdown of some common oil types and the kinds of vehicles and engines that they tend to serve best:

Conventional Oil

Vehicles with average mileage and simple engine types work well with conventional oil. Since so many vehicles fit this description, conventional oil is a popular choice. It also tends to be the most affordable. So, if you're looking for oil that offers a good balance of performance and affordability, you'll find that many vehicles do well with conventional oil.

Synthetic Oil

Synthetic oil is an artificial lubricant that works especially well in extreme temperatures, such as those in bitter cold Boston winters, because it offers better viscosity. This ability to flow easier in extreme cold or heat makes synthetic oil better at lubricating your engine parts in any weather. Synthetic oil's improved protection does typically come at a higher cost than conventional oil.

Synthetic Blend Oil

Synthetic blend oil offers a combination of conventional oil and synthetic oil, meaning that you can enjoy the best of both worlds. With improved protection at a lower cost, synthetic blend oil is ideal if you're looking for a good middle ground as you drive around Stoughton and Dedham.
