Benefits of Using Synthetic Oil

If your car stalled in the middle of the freeway due to the engine overheating for the nth time, you know that it’s probably time to change your motor oil. However, if the same brand of motor oil causes your engine to overheat prematurely, then it may also be a good time to consider utilizing a high-quality synthetic motor oil for your car.

Synthetic oils are usually man-made, but derived from natural gas or alcohol. There are pure synthetic oils and there are synthetic blends. If you’re eyeing that bottle of pure synthetic oil, here are some of the benefits you can expect:
Wider Temperature Range
Synthetic oils have high natural viscosity, meaning that it can effectively handle temperature extremes with relative ease. This factor is important to a car that is constantly put to the test in challenging temperatures.
Better Fuel Economy
One should not expect that making the switch to synthetic motor oil will immediately make an impact on your gas-saving efforts. However, it has been found that it can boost the efficiency of your car by 2 or 3 percent. Moreover, since synthetic oil is easier to pump through an engine, more energy is saved.
Longer Oil Life
Besides the terrific temperature tolerance, synthetic oils are free of unstable molecules and components that makes it more resistant to degradation or oxidation. This reduces the need for frequent oil changes, and protects your car’s engine as well.
