The Different Types of Motor Vehicle Oil Available at Mall of Georgia Ford

To protect your vehicle for many years and keep it running as efficiently as possible, Mall of Georgia Ford recommends that you utilize routine maintenance such as oil changes. Our certified technicians use a few different motor oils in the vehicles we service, and the type that you choose will depend on things like:

  • Your current mileage
  • The make and model of the car you have
  • The recommendation from the manufacturer of your vehicle
  • The type of oil you've been previously using for oil changes
  • The way that you drive
  • The weather where you do the most driving

If you're not sure what product you should select, we recommend reading on to find out about the various types of motor oil available.

Full Synthetic Motor Oil

Full synthetic motor oil is the highest quality product that you can purchase. It provides a level of lubrication like no other, and you'll be able to easily protect your vehicle from things like temperature fluctuations, sludge, and oxidation. This is also a great way to increase the overall efficiency of your automobile. You'll be heading to the gas pump a lot less with this investment. We recommend a fully synthetic motor oil if you're going to be doing a lot of driving in an area that goes from frigid winters to sweltering summers.

Synthetic Blend Motor Oil

Blending conventional oil and synthetic oil produces a motor oil product that effectively protects against oxidation and other damage. You can also save on the price of the oil while slightly increasing your fuel efficiency rating.

Conventional Motor Oil

Conventional oil is a favorite of many vehicle owners because of how affordable it is. If you're doing typical short-distance driving in a climate that doesn't change much, you can get away with conventional oil.

High Mileage Motor Oil

Once you've arrived at 75,000 miles on your odometer, we recommend switching over to a high mileage motor oil that is designed with your vehicle in mind. A high mileage oil reduces the risk of leaks while reducing emissions. You can also increase the efficiency of an older car with a high mileage product.

Contact Mall of Georgia Ford if you would like more assistance picking motor oil for your automobile. We recommend checking your owner's manual for more information, but our technicians are happy to help you with this process as well.
