What engine oil for my car? It’s this one! But…
Your hand book will recommend the correct grade of oil for your car. The grade of oil is measured by the oils viscosity e.g. 5W-30. This describes the starting temperature range of the oil and how oil thickness changes based on the time of year. The low figure in an oil 5W-30 indicates winter/cold weather starting temperature. Viscosity changes with heat.
Many of us remember cars really struggling to start in cold weather, or a sputtering turnover. They just could not push the oil around the engine as it was too thick until it had warmed up. This isn’t really the case with modern oils which burst into life circulating around the engine as they are much thinner. Imagine that thick oil glooping around the engine. How much residue would be left? The engine would have to work harder meaning greater fuel consumption.
Thinner oils help fuel consumption, but what would help even more is for all oil residues to be removed throughout the engine so that there is nothing slowing down the flow of oil. For this you would need an engine decontamination treatment.
