Viscosity may sound like a complicated scientific term, but the concept behind it is very simple and straightforward. The word represents a measurable property associated with fluids and is used to describe the thickness of motor oil and other liquid substances.

The viscosity of a fluid is almost always affected by its temperature. This is definitely the case for motor oil. Vehicles that are operated in colder climates usually benefit from less viscous motor oil products while those in hotter areas can handle more viscous oil. Some automotive manufacturers even recommend switching to more viscous oil in the summer and less viscous oil in the winter.
