We Choose the Appropriate Oil For You

At Arcadia Ultimate Automotive we choose the right oil for your engine. The choice between using full-synthetic vs synthetic blend and other oils depends on the year of your vehicle. We always follow the appropriate guidelines when choosing the appropriate oil for your vehicle.  In the past 6-8 years Automakers including Honda and Toyota have almost completely switched from oils such as 5W-30 and 10W-30 oils to OW-20 engine oils.While this oil is great for newer model cars, it is not always appropriate for older model cars.Arcadia Ultimate uses Valvoline Full Synthetic when 0W-20 is required. In need of an oil change? Give us a call today and schedule an appointment to let our team give your trusty vehicle a new dose of oil!. At Arcadia Ultimate Automotive we choose the right oil for your engine. 

Full Synthetic vs Synthetic Blend - Whats the difference?

Not all synthetic oils are the same. If you’ve ever gotten a quote from your dealership you may think the price is competitive – but the oil is not!

First we should define synthetic oil – synthetic oil is a lubricant consisting of chemical compounds that are artificially made, as opposed to mineral motor oil which comes from crude oil. Beyond that there are two types of synthetic oil, synthetic blend and full synthetic. Think of it like this – your dealer offering you synthetic blend is like them offering you juice made from concentrate, diluted with water and sugar. The “juice” you get at Arcadia is 100% pure without the unnecessary and unhealthy additives. Come see us for your next oil change and don’t let your engine suffer any longer!
