The short explanation is that synthetic oil is a man-made, artificial lubricant. Because it’s produced from controlled ingredients, its purity is much higher than petroleum-based oil, which relies on a natural product. That means synthetic oil has greater longevity and higher quality than conventional motor oil.

Drivers using synthetic motor oil can expect to extend or even double the time between oil changes, making it an economic product. Its benefits don’t stop there, however; synthetic oil doesn’t build up in your engine the same way that conventional oil does, meaning your engine will be cleaner and perform more efficiently.

Some vehicles may stipulate using synthetic oil from the beginning, but if your vehicle isn’t one of them, you can still make the switch. It’s a good idea to speak with a technician familiar with your vehicle to see if it’s the right choice for your car before doing so.
