What is the Difference Between Synthetic and Conventional Motor Oil?

Before your vehicle’s next oil change, you might want explore the distinction between conventional and synthetic motor oil. Each of them has characteristics that make them suitable for certain applications. Two points to consider are the type of driving you do and the vehicle itself.

Conventional oil’s viscosity is achieved by blending crude oil with additives. It is an appropriate choice for low-mileage driving or with an older vehicle. Synthetic oil, on the other hand, is created in the lab using derivatives from natural resources, like crude oil. It can also be completely man made. It’s the oil of choice for high-performance engines, newer vehicles, or significant mileage.
