A premium oil change can cost significantly more than a conventional one. We’re often asked: are there any extra benefits behind premium oil that justify the higher price? The answer is, undoubtedly, yes.
In this article, we’ll examine why synthetic oil has such an extreme advantage over its conventional counterpart—and why it’s worth the extra cost.
What’s the Difference?
The terms synthetic and conventional essentially refer to the base oils of the lubricant. Both are found in the ground but, after that, they become highly distinguished. Premium synthetic oil goes through a rigorous sequence of purification to remove impurities, which gives it its superiority in quality and function—every molecule is specifically engineered to protect your engine and perform better. Some even debate that it’s better for the environment as synthetic oil requires less frequent changes and enhances your engine’s overall fuel economy.
What Makes Synthetic Oil Special?
We’ll spare you the complex science equations here—all you really need to know is that synthetic base oil and its powerful additives create a formula that goes farther than conventional oil. While the base of a conventional oil is refined, synthetically produced oil has a superior molecular structure that keeps your engine cleaner, protecting against impurities and deposits and lubricating your engine. That means that premium oil lasts longer and requires fewer changes, which, in the long run, helps your engine last longer.
An oil that doesn’t break down can protect your engine for longer before needing replacement. Consider a premium oil change during your next visit to V&F Auto Inc! Schedule an appointment for your next oil change.
