Are Synthetic Oils Better Than Conventional Oils? Can you really tell any difference in your cost and operation of your vehicle?
What is the big deal about synthetics anyway isn’t natural stuff the best?
Synthetic oils are more resistant to oxydation and acids, increasing service life. Some users have started monitoring the quality of of their oils as they are used so that they are only replaced when necessary.
A petroleum product’s “cloud point” is the temperature at which solids become visible in petroleum products. Synthetic oils have a lower cloud point than conventional oils making them suitable for use in severe cold.
Synthetic oils reduce friction more than conventional oils. This improves fuel economy and power while reducing part wear.
Synthetic oils are also more resistant to burning, lowering oil use and engine soot. Many high-performance and low emissions engines now require synthetic oil to ensure engine sensors stay clean.
Just a word from Atermarketnews.com says this about synthetic oils being better:
The key benefit of synthetic oils is chemistry that allows them to perform for extended periods of time,” said Chuck Kerrigan, director of marketing, for Purolator. “In order to take advantage of the extended life offered by synthetic oils, motorists need an oil filter that can capture and hold the tiny particulates that can accumulate over time.
- The protection factor for your engine is much better.
Apx 40% of the wear on your engine is at startup, all the oil is in the pan and must be pumped up into the engine and all those holes and crevices,as there is very little residue left from the last start/run.Now throw in the coldness of winter.The Viscosity of lubricants under these conditions is directly related to engine cranking and startability. The lower a lubricant’s cold crank viscosity, the easier an engine will turn over in cold temperatures. The low cold crank viscosity of a Synthetic Motor Oil will reduces drag on moving engine parts and allows engines to achieve critical cranking speed in extremely frigid temperatures. The engines can turn over quickly and dependably even in the coldest winter temperatures.
- The cost factor of oil changes are more effective using synthetic.(depends on how many miles you are driving per day/month/year) Not to even mention the longevity of your cars motor. More on that in another article.
