What Are Some Common Motor Oil Myths?

March 29th, 2018 by

Motor oil may seem like a pretty straightforward product, but let us assure you, there are a ton of myths floating around out there about it. That is why we here at Walser Automotive Group want to ensure that we debunk a few of them for you here today.


The first big myth is that as soon as oil turns black, it needs to be changed. This has never been the case and instead will result in many unnecessary oil changes. The second is that if you use synthetic oil, even once, you can never go back to traditional motor oil. This is again not the case. Feel free to switch back and forth between the two brands at any time.

If you would like us to debunk any more myths about motor oil for you or you need a service team for any reason, please reach out to our Service Center at any of our 25 locations across the Twin Cities Metro!
