What Is Synthetic Motor Oil?
First, it's important to note that synthetic oil and traditional motor oil are made from refining oil. The majority of synthetics begin with highly refined crude oil, pumped from deep underground, the same source as conventional oil.
The main difference between traditional oil and synthetic oil is at the level of refinement. Synthetic oil is not only refined; it is purified, distilled, and broken down into its essential molecules. This procedure removes more impurities from crude oil and enables individual molecules in the oil to cover the demands of modern engines.
The effect is that synthetic oils typically protect your vehicle better than traditional oils, have some performance advantages, especially in high temperatures, and last longer.
The Advantages of Synthetic Motor Oil
Full synthetic oils provide better protection for your car. How that translates on the road is:
Greater Protection from Engine Wear
Engine parts are frequently grinding together, and it's the job of the oil to act as a protective barrier between these components. Unlike traditional oils, synthetics maintain their wear protection properties for much longer, boosting engine life.
Better Winter Protection
When your car sits for a while, the oil settles. Once you start it up, the oil begins flowing through essential engine parts to protect against friction. During the cold winters, those oils take even longer to run smoothly. However with synthetics, they're engineered to start protecting your engine the second you start your car.
Oil circulating through your engine picks up deposits. Sludge may form in conventional oils from time to time, reducing efficiency. This ultimately lowers the lifespan of your engine. Synthetic motor oil prevents deposits from forming in your car's engine since it has fewer impurities.
Better Heat Protection
Then there are the California summers when the temperatures are hot. The extreme heat produced by a car's engine can disintegrate or evaporate conventional motor oils, putting your engine at risk of wear. Synthetics are designed to resist high temperatures, giving them added protection.
