Synthetic Oil vs. Regular Oil 

Many Southfield drivers have the same question: “What is synthetic oil?” Synthetic oil is comprised of a base oil, powder additives, and a carrier oil that allows the additives to be dispersed consistently. Synthetic and regular oil are similar in that they’re both made from refined crude oils, but that’s where their similarities end. There is more refining involved for synthetic oil; it is refined, distilled, purified, and broken down at a molecular level, giving synthetic oil the following advantages when compared to conventional oil:

  • Less friction due to similar molecule sizes 
  • Reduced deposits 
  • Cleaner engine operation due to additives 
  • Better performance in extreme climates 
  • Fewer impurities in the final product
