Engine Oil is a lot more complex these days, that's why it's critical to get the right specification recommended by the vehicles manufacturer. Filling your engine with the right oil ensures the same lubrication, cooling, and additive packages that the engine was designed around are present, this in turn keeps running at optimum and the protection of internal delicate components is kept at maximum.
