What is Synthetic Motor Oil?

Many drivers question the use of synthetic motor oil in their vehicles when it is first offered to them or required by the type of car or truck they have. Synthetic oil is a chemically-created blend that provides superior coating and more protection for engine parts than conventional oils. In other words, synthetic oil keeps your engine running like new for longer.

Two types of synthetic oils are available. One is a synthetic blend, which combines conventional and synthetic oils into one product. It's not as expensive as a fully synthetic version and doesn't provide the same amount of protection. Both types, however, will offer higher viscosity, lower evaporative loss and a greater resistance to breakdown and sludge.
