Fig. Fig. 2: Look for the API oil identification label when choosing your engine oil

Use only oil which has the API (American Petroleum Institute) designation SG , CC , CD , SG/CC or SG/CD .

Since fuel economy is effected by the viscosity (thickness) of the engine oil, it is recommended to select an oil with reference to the outside temperature. For satisfactory lubrication, use a lower viscosity oil for colder temperatures and a higher viscosity oil for warmer temperatures.
