Motor oil myths are obnoxiously insidious. The harmful effects you stand to suffer because of unfounded rumors significantly outweigh any potential benefits. In many cases, the falsehoods will end up costing you money. We're here to help; here are a few of our least favorite motor oil myths.

There is nothing wrong with motor oil that is black in color. Black motor oil indicates an oil that is working hard to clean your engine, which is precisely what you want. In reality, you should be more concerned with a product that isn't turning black.

If you aren't due for an oil change, then don't get one. If you're getting an oil change before you're due for one, then regardless of circumstance, you are wasting money. Follow your vehicle's exact mileage guidelines, which you can find in your owner's manual.
