Comparing Synthetic Oil to Conventional Oil

Drivers may have read or otherwise heard about synthetic motor oil. It is purported to last longer and generally be better for a car's engine. However, the main difference between synthetic and conventional oil is how it is made and what it is made from.

Synthetic oil is loosely defined as a product that is not made from a petroleum base. There are five different types of motor oil rated one through five. The first two groups are labeled as conventional oil while the final two groups are pure synthetic oil. The middle group actually uses a mix of petroleum and chemical additives.

It is important to note that both conventional oil and synthetic oil can offer quality protection for a car's engine. Talking with someone from Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Twin Falls in Twin Falls, ID may help a car owner learn more about what oil to put in his or her vehicle.
