Conventional vs. synthetic oils

Posted on January 4, 2012 at 8:01 PM

Everyone knows, or seems to know, that synthetic oils are better than conventional oils, but do you know why?

The fact is synthetic oils have several material advantages over their non-synthetic counterparts. Synthetic oils are structured with very specific properties, which leads to stronger oxidative protection against breakdown and lower evaporation rates under high temperature conditions. Synthetics also excel at low temperature operation and provide superior film strength.

What do all of these features mean to the vehicle owner? Longer service life, excellent component protection, better fuel economy, enhanced performance and power, eased cold starting and quicker circulation during the initial warm-up period.
Unfortunately, due to high cost, full synthetic oils are still not the norm for most automakers. But, even synthetic blends, which can range on average at 20-50 percent synthetic base oil use, can offer substantial performance increases over non-synthetic versions.

Ready to make the switch?
Don't pop the hood yet. If your engine has been running on conventional oil for a while, don't switch to synthetic oil without proper preparation.
If you plan to switch over to full synthetic oil, prepare your engine with a Performance Oil Change Service,  with  a full synthetic oil, a engine flush to clean "sludge" from system and a de-carbonizer. Used together, these products will remove tough carbon deposits from the piston ring area as well as the rest of the oil system. Then your engine will be prepared for maximum efficiency.
So when it comes to conventional vs. synthetic oil, why should you switch? Because, price means nothing if performance doesn't follow. Synthetics offer benefits that are worth the higher price. With today's fuel prices, increased fuel economy alone will pay the difference. In many cases a increase of up to 3 mpg can be observed dependant upon driving habits. So in closing,  how much do you value your engine?
