Motor oil is a fun topic to learn about. The most fun that comes with learning is dispelling the myths. Among the many myths about the motor oil is what the "W" stands for on the package.

While a lot of people think that the "W" stands for "weight", it actually stands for "winter", as in winter viscosity. The viscosity of the oil changes as the temperature changes. This means that the oil is going to have a different viscosity in the winter than it does in the summer. The rule when it comes to this is that the more vicious oil is going to have the lower number.
