There are many ways to improve the fuel economy of your car while driving steadily and no sudden accelerations to inflating your car at the right pressure. You should also know that car engine oil also contributes as a major factor in helping your car reach the extra mile with no extra costs.
To choose the right oil for yourself, you should always look at the car's engine manual for recommended oil and make. Aside from that, your car mechanic will also suggest you the very best oil based on the car and the conditions you drive in.
For most buyers, the fully-synthetic one is the very best since it proves economical in the long run and does not require changing as frequently as the mineral oils do. Since these are manufactured in specialized labs by adding additives to the basic oil, they are able to provide performance, engine longevity and better efficiency.
Thicker or thinner oil is what matters most. The lower viscosity oils work best and should be used in your car. Oils that are thinner work the very best in cold conditions and turn thick when conditions become warmer. You can also go for multi-grade oils that have extra polymers in them that activate only when the oil gets heated up, unless they keep the oil thin.
Always follow the oil change interval diligently! These oils can last only up till the time the manufacturer prescribes for them. After that, they will kill your engine slowly. Do not use oil more than its intended life; your engine may obstruct beyond repair.
While stopping at a red light, you should have noticed that if the rush is excessive, some people shut off their car engines and kick back quietly. No, they are not stupid! They are actually giving more life to their car. Unnecessary idling kills your car slowly without you even knowing it!
