What type of oil should I use?
When you get your oil changed, you will find 3 basic types. Conventional (Non-synthetic Oil), Semi-synthetic oil and fully synthetic oil. Conventional oil is the regular oil that you find made from petroleum products, while synthetic is a fully man made product derived from various chemicals. Semi-synthetic is of course a mixture of the conventional and synthetic oil.
There are a balance of pros and cons for each kind of oil, but we will just focus on conventional and synthetic. Conventional oil is made from petroleum, which can be harmful to the environment; however, it can be recycled, which means that some to most of the oil can be reclaimed and used again, decreasing its impact on the environment. Synthetic oil is also made from chemicals that can cause harm to the environment as well.
As far as cost goes, synthetic oil can cost upwards of twice the cost of a conventional oil change, which can hurt your pocket book if you can’t invest the money into it. In the long run though, it may actually save you money.
Efficiency is where synthetic oil wins. Synthetic oil gives you two to three times the distance that conventional oil will give you before needing a change. This is due to the fact that it can run in higher temperatures and generally perform overall. You may get 10, 15 or even 20,000 miles per oil change depending on the type of synthetic oil. You will also find that well maintained synthetic oil will also improve the performance of the vehicle, giving you an increased horsepower and mileage.
So, after you have found your Jiffy Lube location when searching Jiffy Lube Near Me, you will have to decide which type of oil is best for your car.
