Regular Oil vs Synthetic- What’s the Difference?
Synthetic oil simply performs better in terms of longevity and its ability to stand up to high temperatures. It is likely that it is the best choice for you and your vehicle.
Synthetic oil is more expensive, but it lasts much longer because it has a different chemical composition and less evaporates out of your exhaust. Using synthetic oil can greatly reduce the number of times you have to change it. This translates into greener living since less oil ends up as waste. Additionally, synthetic oils create less resistance in the engine and lead to greater power and efficiency in your car’s overall operation. This is especially important for high performance vehicles. Synthetic oil can even slightly improve your fuel efficiency.
You may have heard of synthetic blends, which are part synthetic and part regular oil. These blends are less expensive and still perform better than regular oil.
Our expert technicians can advise you what is best for your vehicle and you can also consult your manufacturer materials to see what oil is recommended for your particular car.
