What do Motor Oil Viscosity Ratings Mean?

Have you ever been told you are as slow as molasses in January? This statement is referring to both your speed and the viscosity of molasses. Molasses has a low viscosity and does not flow very well. No one expects motor oil to have the viscosity of molasses. If this does happen, the car owner has more pressing problems to worry about.

Motor oil viscosity simply means how easily the oil flows through the engines. It pays to have a thicker oil in the winter, and a less thick oil in the summer. Changing the oil in the right season makes things easier for the car owner and those who depend on the car owner.

If you are a car owner whom people depend on, make sure that you have the right weight of oil in your car. It extends the life of the engine, and it reduces the overall cost of repairs.
