Apart from true driving enthusiasts, our vehicles are something we simply rely on for dependable transportation from one destination to another. Many drivers fail to understand the value in regular vehicle maintenance. One the cheapest and easiest way to maintain your vehicle is with regular oil changes.
The main purpose for putting motor oil into an engine is to lubricate the parts inside. Inside of a car's engine there are many moving parts that, without lubrication, would rub against one another, creating extreme levels of friction, heat, and wear. Motor oil acts as a lubricant between these parts within the internal combustion engine of an automobile, effectively reducing wear, friction, and heat production. Without motor oil, a car's engine would wear out quickly, become extremely inefficient, and ultimately fail.
Every automobile manufacturer would tell you without hesitation that consistently changing and maintaining the oil in your car's engine will keep your vehicle running more efficiently and will extend the life expectancy of your engine.

There are three major categories of motor oil, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Conventional motor oil is derived from crude oil, and is constituted entirely of petroleum products. Synthetic motor oil, however, is derived from a synthetic base like synthetic esters or other man-made chemicals, many of which are also created using petroleum products. Synthetic blend motor oil is made up of a blend of both synthetic and conventional motor oil.
Most experts agree that synthetic motor oil is the best option. While synthetic motor oil is more expensive than conventional motor oil or synthetic blend motor oil, it also provides better lubrication, has a much longer life within the engine (doesn't need to be changed as often), helps increase engine efficiency and performance, and performs better at extreme temperatures. For those who cannot afford true synthetic motor oil, synthetic blends are another good option. Those who use conventional motor oil will spend less on motor oil, but may end up paying more in vehicle maintenance and may need to change their oil more often, thus negating the savings factor of the conventional motor oil.
