2018 Buick* Encore* Oil Type

Based on the engine of your vehicle, AMSOIL’s OE 5W-30 or OE 0W-20 is the optimum 2018 Buick* Encore* oil type. AMSOIL’s OE 5W-30 (4.2 quarts with oil filter) synthetic motor oil is a great improvement for your Encore* if it has a multi-port injection, 1.4L 4-cylinder, [B] LUV Turbo engine. Anyone with a 1.4L four-cylinder [M] LE2 Turbo engine equipped with a direct-port injection system should convert to AMSOIL’s 0W-20 (4.2 quarts with oil filter) Synthetic Motor Oil.
