Finding the right oil for your car can be complex because you have a wide variety of options, and making sure you choose the right motor oil is important. Knowing the difference between conventional and synthetic oil is an important piece of information to understand. At a basic level, if you drive an older domestic vehicle, then your manufacturer would recommend using conventional oil. If you drive a European import, you will likely be recommended to use synthetic oil. In addition to meeting the manufacturers' recommendations, full synthetic oils offer benefits like extended drain intervals, better performance in high operating temperatures and enhanced protection for engines under the extreme stress of towing. That's why every engine will benefit from full synthetic oil, even if your vehicle's manufacturer doesn't yet insist on it.
Castrol has a variety of motor oils that meet and exceed a range of specifications, all to meet your vehicle’s specific needs. That is why we have different options for you to choose from, such as Castrol GTX, Castrol Edge, and a range of High Milage products.

If you are unsure of the oil type and specifications your vehicle calls for, you have a few options to make the right choice. Your first option is to check your owner’s manual to find the right type and grade of oil your car manufacturer recommends.
