Synthetic Oil vs. Regular Oil

You might be wondering first, “how is synthetic oil different from regular oil?” First, synthetic oil is made of a base oil, with powder additives, and a carrier oil that distributes these additives evenly. Synthetic oil is still made from refined crude oils, but the big difference between the two is how much refining is involved. Beyond regular motor oil, synthetic oil is refined, distilled, purified, and broken down at a molecular level. This provides synthetic oil with several advantages, including:

  • Less friction due to similar molecule sizes
  • Reduced deposits
  • Cleaner engine operation due to additives
  • Higher performance in extreme climates
  • Fewer impurities in the final product
