Light crude oil has a lower viscosity than heavy crude. The viscosity in crude oil depends on the amount of wax content. The more wax is present, the higher the viscosity (the heavier the crude).

The classification of light vs heavy is not clear cut but is important as light crude is easier to pump and transport than heavier crude.
