Even though the car burns about a quart of oil a month, it's still a great car and get's great mileage. On top of that, it's completely paid for. Yay!Oh no... I'm glad my car isn't a oil burner! I would hate to have to remember to keep checking the oil. Right now I just check it every 3000 miles when I change it. I use the boring normal stuff.
Bingo! The name is what makes one brand of oil more expensive as the other. For example, Walmart brand oil is cheaper than the name brands, but if you do some research, you'll find that one company supplies both Walmart and a nationally recognized name brand.What is the difference between the expensive and the regular oil? The name.
I also use the cheap ones because I think they don't have much difference from the expensive oils. It is the brand name that makes them expensive.
Interesting. What about the quality? Is the oil the company supplies Walmart is as good as it of the recognized name brand? I assume that the company produce different types of oil for different clients.For example, Walmart brand oil is cheaper than the name brands, but if you do some research, you'll find that one company supplies both Walmart and a nationally recognized name brand.
I concur with this. I remember my father telling all of us (me and my brothers) that when you decide on a type of oil, it is best to stick to that oil.I disagree. There are detergents and other differences in the oil that would make it unwise to change to another brand of oil from your usual. I have always used the same type of oil in my vehicles and I have a lot less trouble than when I was using various types of oil.
