Choosing the right engine oil for your car can seem like a daunting task, especially with the number variations and scientific terminology adorning each bottle of engine oil lining the shelves at your local automotive store.
Synthetic oils can be engineered to perform more effectively than conventional engine oils across a wider range of conditions. Their performance is more robust, in terms of low-temperature pumping and flow as well as high-temperature oxidation stability. They stay fluid at very low temperatures when conventional oils start to thicken,and remain stable at very high temperatures when conventional oils start to break down.
Under extreme driving conditions synthetic oils offer clearly superior protection and performance. Extreme conditions include:
- Stop-and-go driving;
- Short trips;
- High temperatures, particularly in modern turbocharged engines;
- Cold start-ups.
This translates to less engine wear to help keep your engine running strong like new, as well as a long engine life.
Conventional engine oils also contain significantly more impurities and undesirable contaminants that cannot be removed and synthetic oils do not possess. Because they are ‘purer’, synthetic oils contribute to lower emissions and don’t do as much damage to your catalytic converter, whilst also tending to last longer because they naturally break down slower than conventional oils.
