The time for an oil change arrives. Do you go with synthetic of standard motor oil? Some car owners aren't sure because they don't know the difference between the two. What makes synthetic different from conventional oil. Let's look at the answer.

Synthetic oil derives from a process using chemical compounds. In general, synthetic offer offers greater viscosity and performance benefits than conventional oil. Synthetic oil doesn't evaporate as quickly and presents fewer sludge issues. For high-mileage and high-performance vehicles, the owners may tend towards using synthetic. Be aware that some vehicle manufacturers require synthetic oil in specific models. Check your owner's manual to make sure.

Don't confuse synthetic oil with synthetic blend oil. Synthetic oil is purely synthetic, while the blend options mix synthetic with conventional oil. For some owners, the blend is the selection to use.
