You may have wondered if using synthetic oil is better for your vehicle's engine. Synthetic oil does have some significant advantages over conventional oil even though both are made from crude oil. The primary difference is that synthetic oil goes through a refining process where impurities are removed from the crude oil. Then special chemical additives are mixed into the oil to help your engine perform better.

One of the benefits of using synthetic oil is that it helps to keep your engine clean. Synthetic oil prevents the buildup of deposits that can prevent your engine from running smoothly. Another benefit of synthetic oil is that it does a better job of protecting your engine from wearing down because it provides a protective barrier that lasts longer than the typical conventional oil.
