**We all need perfect engine oil in order for our vehicles to perform well without any wear and tear. Here we are today, listing our top picks for perfect engine oils. **

engine oil

If you want your vehicle to function properly, be it a four-wheeler or a two-wheeler, engine oil has been and will always be a very crucial component. Truth be told, without the appropriate amount of engine oil, or without the perfect viscosity of engine oil, the engine is doomed, it will never function properly. Now, the question is, what role does the engine oil play exactly? Note that there are two major components in an engine- one is the cylinder and the other is the piston. The movement of a piston is usually vertical inside the cylinder to generate power and in this process, it generates a lot of heat. Here the engine oil comes to action. It not only helps in cooling down the cylinder but also helps to reduce the friction between the piston and cylinder. And if the engine oil is minimal or has lost its viscosity, the temperature most certainly will rise and the friction will increase, thus resulting in the failure of the engine, and a lot of damage than you could’ve expected.

Therefore, it should be a primary exercise to keep a watch on the level of oil in the engine. And so, we are here to list the top 5 engine oils for your vehicle. They can be bought either in a 1-liter pack or a 4-liter pack.
