Mineral oils are produced from crude oil extracted from bedrock, and are a traditional motor oil. Mineral oils are often used in older engines, where their low viscosity reduces the risk of leakage.
Before you buy motor oil
Before buying motor oil, you should check your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations. This information can be found in the car’s physical or digital manual. Among other things, the manual will state the oil type and viscosity grade you should use and which specifications the oil should conform to.
