Synthetic Oil or Conventional Oil?
Should you choose synthetic oil or conventional oil? Though many owners may cringe at the sticker price when it comes to synthetic oil, there are many compelling benefits that make it more than worthwhile. Here are a few things that you should consider when deciding which type of oil you should use.
The Benefits of Choosing Synthetic Oil
- Maintaining your engine. Synthetic oil moves through the engine and cleans out deposits, thereby helping the engine operate at peak efficiency. This will reduce the amount of repairs that need to be done and save significantly in costs overall.
- Better performance regardless of environment. Synthetic oil is able to operate at peak performance from summer to winter. Conventional oils will change in viscosity depending on the weather, which can cause issues in the vehicle and its parts.
- Longer lasting overall. Synthetic oil lasts significantly longer than its natural counterparts, making it one of the most convenient alternatives to traditional industrial oils and lubricants. Rather than having to change your oil every 3,000 miles, you’re more likely to change it every 7,000 miles. This saves you the actual cost of the oil change in addition to the inconvenience of getting one.
The Potential Drawbacks of Synthetic Oil
Many individuals feel that synthetic oil is too expensive. But unlike other fluids such as hydraulics fluids, oil often needs to be replaced. Because of this, there’s a savings of money over time: synthetic oil is replaced at far less a frequency than conventional oil.
There is, however, one drawback to synthetic oil. Synthetic oil may cause some problems in poorly maintained or exceptionally old vehicles. If the vehicle is already experiencing leaks, synthetic oil could make it worse. If the vehicle has older or nearly broken seals, the vehicle could also experience some additional leaks. A properly maintained and relatively new vehicle will not experience these issues.
Oil is one of the most common maintenance procedures for most vehicle owners. Because of this, it’s worth it for owners to invest some time and money into figuring out the best solution for them. For nearly every car owner, synthetic oil is going to be preferable.
