Motor oil is made from crude oil and is used to lubricate, clean, and cool engines. Types of motor oil include conventional, synthetic, diesel, bio-based, hybrid (blends of conventional and synthetic), and recycled oils. Motor oil varies in weight and viscosity, as well as additives that some manufacturers add to the oil during the refining process. A numerical code system created by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) grades motor oils according to viscosity--the higher the number between 0 and 60, the more viscous (thicker) the oil is. Most consumer motor oils are graded by two numbers, with the first number indicating cold weather (Winter or "W") performance.
This oil has a weight of SAE 5W-30, meaning it has an SAE viscosity rating of 5 in cold temperatures and a rating of 30 at normal operating temperature. Always check your vehicle's owner's manual to verify that this is the correct weight of motor oil for your vehicle.
Conventional Motor Oil
This oil is a conventional motor oil, meaning it is refined from crude oil or petroleum products. Conventional motor oils may or may not have additives included after refining. Conventional motor oils are more versatile than synthetic or hybrid motor oils, because they are suitable for use with nearly all types of modern vehicle engines, from cars and trucks to motorcycles, ATVs, farm equipment, and more.

Originally developed for aerospace, synthetic oils became commercially available in the 1960's. Some technical advantages Synthetic Oil has over Conventional Oil are [from Wikipedia]:
- Measurably better low and high temperature viscosity performance
- Better chemical & shear stability
- Decreased evaporative loss
- Resistance to oxidation, thermal breakdown and oil sludge problems
- Extended drain intervals with the environmental benefit of less oil waste.
- Improved fuel economy in certain engine configurations.
- Better lubrication on cold starts
By using a Synthetic oil not only will your engine be able to perform better, but it can also extend the engine life. I HIGHLY recommend use for those with more severe or high demand driving conditions.
Hint: you might like to change the filter every 3000-4000 miles to trap particles caused from engine wear, but simply top up the oil. The 5W part says you can run it in cold snowy winter (as.opposed to 10W, which do not do well below freezing point). So 5W is always preferable to 10W where it snows. Contrary to claim, the 0W-30 (though it does even better in the coldest climate - you do not need to warm up your engine) does not retain its characteristic as long.
What is the advantage of synthetic 5W-30 over regular oils? 5W synthetic means you do not need to warm up your engine before starting your day except where it approaches freezing point! [Regular oils need warming up the engine to perform its task of protecting the engine, and go bad quicker].
Why Extended Performance? It retains its characteristics longer, you will have to change oil less frequently (you wil HAVE TO change filter when it reaches its limits for holding contaminants, when the oil starts becoming murky; but you can change only the filter, not the oil, and simply top up).
IMPORTANT: (1) The quality of the filter also contributes to how frequent you have to change your oil. Use Mobil or Bosch Distance Plus. With Fram filter the oil went quickly brown within 3000 miles, whereas with Mobil filter the oil hardly changes color even after 3000 miles. (2) Do NOT use filters that liberate additives to the oil (like Fram High Mileage filter) - those make the oil go bad quicker.
