SYNTHETIC OIL VS. CONVENTIONAL OIL

SYNTHETIC OIL VS. CONVENTIONAL OIL

Synthetic oil has many advantages over conventional motor oil. Synthetic oil is designed to be more effective at:

  • Resisting oil breakdown, which makes it last longer than conventional oil

  • Withstanding higher temperatures than conventional oil, which helps keep engines running longer

  • Flowing in cold temperatures thus reducing engine wear during frigid startups.

 

There's a downside: Synthetic motor oil is more costly than conventional motor oil.

Though your car manufacturer may recommend conventional oil, there are many scenarios  where synthetic oil resistance to breakdown can help prolong the life of an engine:

  • If you make lots of short trips, standard motor oil may never get warm enough to burn off moisture and impurities that can accumulate. That could hasten the breakdown of conventional oil.

  • If you live in a region with very cold winters or very hot summers, or if you use your vehicle for towing or hauling heavy material, synthetic oil helps protect the engine from strain and won’t break down as quickly as conventional oil.

  • If you have an older engine that’s prone to sludge buildup. This gunky residue forms when oil breaks down, and it can block oil passages and lead to a quick engine death. In the early 2000s, several engines from Chrysler, Toyota, and Volkswagen, among others, were especially prone to sludge buildup. Synthetic oil is less likely to form this troublesome sludge.

 

Synthetic oil generally works better than conventional with increased miles, however, it's important to remain current with regular oil changes. We encourage not going beyond the manufacturer's recommended time interval, typically every 6-months or 5,000 miles.
