It is important to know the basics when it comes to changing the oil on your vehicle. Synthetic oil is a higher quality motor oil that has been scientifically modified to have characteristics that are designed to make your vehicle's motor last longer and wear better. So what makes synthetic oil better than conventional motor oil for many modern cars?

Synthetic oil has characteristics like a higher viscosity index, less evaporative loss, and more resistance to sludge. Synthetic motor oil also performs better under conditions where the temperature is exceedingly high, or exceedingly low below freezing. You must use the oil recommended by the manufacturer when servicing.

The bottom line is that if you care about your automobile and it’s life, you will use synthetic oil if it comes recommended by the manufacturer as the better option. You also have the cheaper option of using a synthetic blend, which is a blend of conventional and synthetic oils. Visit us at Fred Martin of Youngstown for a fast and easy oil change.
