Manufacturers often recommend oils licensed by API as these oils have been rigorously tested to prove they meet API's engine oil standards and ensure that consumers get the high-quality oil demanded by today’s engines. Not all vehicles require the same level of performance or viscosity grade.

Our series highlighting the economic and jobs impact of energy in each of the 50 states continues today with Arkansas. We started the series with Virginia on June 29 and all information covered in this series can be found online here, arranged on an interactive map of the United States.
