Synthetic motor oil is a carefully balanced additive/base oil system that gives maximum engine protection under severe driving conditions.
Fully synthetic motor oils contain non-conventional, high-performance fluids, such as polyalphaolefins (PAOs).
Semi-synthetic oils (also called “blends”) usually use a small percentage of non-conventional, high-performance fluids in combination with conventional oil. Most California driving is considered severe under manufacture guidelines.
A synthetic oil change is considered the best oil change money can buy and is for those who want the highest level of cleaning, protection and performance in their motor oil.
Some of the benefits of synthetic oil:
• Outstanding wear protection.
• Excellent high- and low-temperature performance
• Improved protection against sludge and harmful deposits.
• Excellent fuel economy benefits (specific grades/viscosities)
