Difference Between Synthetic and Conventional Oil

Difference between synthetic and conventional oil 

Oil Is The Life and Blood

So It's important to know about different types of oil and how it affects it. Many people might know that synthetic oil is usually better for a car's performance; however, you may not know any additional differences between synthetic and conventional beyond that.

Where Does The Oil Come From?

Both synthetic and conventional oil come from the same place-that is, the ground. That's where the process of making conventional oil ends. But for synthetic oil, it's a much different story. Once the oil has been taken from the ground, it's purified, refined, and distilled. The oil is then broken down into its most basic molecular form. This step allows engineers to purify the oil even more and tailor it specifically to work well with modern day automobile engines.

So Which Is Better?

As a result, synthetic oil provides smoother, better, longer-lasting performance than conventional motor oil. Synthetic oil handles better in extreme temperatures too; it warm ups and flows smoothly when it's cold and is engineered to handle a lot of heat. Synthetic oil is also protective, keeping each part of your engine cleaner and in its best condition. With this information, it's no wonder we like to use synthetic oil at Ed Shults Subaru when we service your vehicles.
