Does My Car Need Synthetic Oil?

The answer is simple: if your owner’s manual says your vehicle requires full-synthetic oil, then you MUST use it. As for older engines that do not require full synthetic oil, we find that full synthetic oil has many advantages, which are listed below.


  • Synthetic oil lubricates better.
  • It makes engines last longer.
  • Improves gas mileage.
  • It requires fewer oil changes.

A high number of people say you can go nearly twice as long between oil changes with synthetic. Compared to standard motor oil, synthetic oil takes longer to break down, can withstand higher temperatures, and can flow easier in cold temperatures.

The advantages of synthetic base oils are thanks to the extreme cleanliness and consistency of the molecular structure achieved in the processing. Conventional base oils are typically only lightly refined, with not all of the inherent impurities (waxes, sulfur, etc.) removed from the petroleum. Instead of being simply refined, the crude for synthetic oil is engineered to produce a uniform molecular structure that offers superior lubrication.
