What is Motor Oil?

Adding oil to engine

 

Motor oil is a huge part of what makes a vehicle run smoothly on Farmingdale roads. It’s important to make sure that you routinely take your vehicle to our service center to make sure you get your oil changed.

This type of maintenance ensures a healthy and safe car. Do you know what type of oil your particular vehicle requires? There are two types of oil that are commonly used, synthetic and conventional/regular. If you’re interested in comparing synthetic oil vs. regular oil, keep reading below! We’ll give the details necessary to have a full understanding of motor oil and we can even go over full synthetic oil vs. synthetic oil blends. 

Full Synthetic Oil vs. Regular Oil vs. Synthetic Oil Blends

While each oil type is different, they do share one thing in common and that is that they are all petroleum-based. How, then, are they so different? We’re glad you asked. Although they share the same base material, they are refined and produced differently, resulting in different characteristics. We’ll explain more about synthetic oil vs. regular oil below: 

Conventional Oil

Convention oil is also sometimes referred to as regular oil and has been used for several decades. It gets the job done effectively and allows you to enjoy your drives through Smithtown without any issues. Conventional oil is usually cheaper than synthetic oil, but it will need to be changed more often. 

Synthetic Oil

As mentioned before, the main difference between the different types of oil is how they are refined. Synthetic oil includes additional chemicals that make it last longer in your engine, meaning you won’t have to change it as often when you drive around Bay Shore. Newer vehicles tend to require synthetic oil as it can offer better lubrication over time. Although you won’t have to get synthetic oil changed as often, it’s more expensive than conventional oil. 

Synthetic Blends

Under the umbrella of synthetic oil, you have synthetic blends. When comparing full synthetic oil vs. synthetic oil blends, you’ll find that the synthetic blends are typically cheaper since it involves both regular and synthetic oil. Another important thing to remember in the full synthetic oil vs synthetic oil blend comparison is that although oil blends are typically cheaper, they still retain similar properties as full synthetic oil.
