Importance of Understanding Viscosity

Viscosity is a common word, but many people do not actually know what it is. Viscosity is basically what the numbers and letters stand for on motor oil bottles. One example of viscosity is 10-30.

Understanding viscosity is important for many reasons. The viscosity can ultimately determine whether or not the motor oil is going to be able to resist flow. It is important to know and understand that low viscosities are ideal for cold temperatures while high viscosities are ideal for when the weather is hot.

Viscosity is an important concept to understand because it will help you make an informed decision regarding which oil is best for your specific vehicle.
