The Advantages Of Synthetic Oil

Why you should consider using synthetic oil in your vehicle.

Most everyone knows that motor oil is the lifeblood of an automobile engine, but few realize the benefits of using synthetic oil in lieu of regular oil. This article explains the advantages of synthetic oil.

  1. Synthetic oil maintains its viscosity (resistance to shear) at higher temperatures which helps prevent wear on the moving engine parts.
  2. Synthetic oils do not get as thick as regular oils at lower temperatures. This makes starting your vehicle on cold mornings a whole lot easier.
  3. Synthetic oil provides a "slicker" surface for moving parts which reduces friction - the primary cause of wear.
  4. Synthetic oils last longer than regular oils.
While synthetic oils are much better at protecting your engine from wear than regular oils, there is a downside - they are also a lot more expensive. An oil change with synthetic oil typically costs 3-4 times more than one with regular oil. But in my opinion the massive costs associated with major engine work makes using synthetic oil a very wise move.
