Car Oil Types

Nissan owners want their cars to have a happy and healthy life. One of the most critical aspects of Nissan care is getting the right oil for your vehicle. While you might think that car oil is a uniform product, there is actually a considerable amount of variety among different kinds of oil. Car oils typically break down into a few categories: full synthetic, partial synthetic, conventional, and high mileage. Each type of oil has a distinct purpose. High mileage oil is made for Nissan vehicles that have reached 75,000 miles, while synthetic and synthetic blend oils are quite universal and versatile.

Synthetic Oil

If you are looking to drive your Nissan long distances or enhance its performance, using synthetic oil will be ideal. Synthetic oils give engines the maximum level of protection against high heat, cold temperatures, and long-distance driving, which can take a toll on the quality and quantity of the engine oil. Synthetic oil is specially made out of chemicals to provide even molecules that help your car perform at its best. Synthetic oil is one of the most expensive types of oil, but it also provides your car with a number of benefits.

Synthetic Blend Oil

Synthetic blend oil combines synthetic oil and conventional oil. Synthetic blend oil is a mixture of conventional and synthetic oil. A synthetic blend oil is also one of the most commonly used types of oil by Nissan owners. Synthetic blend oils do not cost as much as full synthetic oils, but they do a good job of protecting the car's engine from corrosion, rust, and leaks. Synthetic blend oils can also be used in a wider range of temperatures than other types of oil.

Conventional Oil

Conventional oil is generally used on older vehicles. Conventional oil is a better match for cars that have less complex engines. While synthetic oil is a good choice for drivers who live in colder places, conventional oil is better for Nissan owners who drive in moderate temperatures. Conventional oil is also a good type of engine oil to use if you don't tend to travel longer distances. With conventional oil, you'll need to change your oil more frequently as well.

High Mileage Oil

High mileage oil is a good choice for a Nissan that is a few years old or has about 75,000 miles. High mileage oil has extra protection for the engine to stop leaks, rust, and corrosion. High mileage oil also has additives to maximize performance.
