We all hear the same question when we pull in to get our oil changed. “Do you want conventional or synthetic oil?” For some the response comes quickly, but for others it is like pulling teeth. What is the difference? Which is better? What is the price difference? Many drivers do not know the difference between conventional and synthetic oil. In the end their decision is typically based on cost, leading them to choose conventional oil for their car.
When it comes down to it, an important thing to remember is that cheaper isn’t always better. The differences between conventional and synthetic oil are more than just what they do for your car. It goes way back to when they are drilled from the ground and the preparation that they undergo prior to being poured into your vehicle. Because synthetic oil is distilled, purified, and broken down, on top of the refining process, it has many benefits for your vehicle compared to conventional oil which is typically just refined.
Benefits of Synthetic Oil include:
Proper circulation of oil through your vehicle is very important. Because conventional oil does not run as smoothly through your car, it often picks up deposits through its flow resulting in sludge. When your oil picks up sludge, your engine performance is reduced. To avoid poor oil circulation through your vehicle, synthetic oil is your best choice.
To ensure that your oil change benefits your vehicle the most, we recommend using synthetic oil in your vehicle. Not because it costs more, because it is much better for your vehicle.
