Benefits of synthetic oil

home  

Synthetic oils bring many technical advantages:

  •  Better low- and high-temperature viscosity performance at service temperature extremes.
  •  Better viscosity index (VI).
  •  Better chemical and shear stability.
  •  Decreased evaporative loss.
  •  Resistance to oxidation, thermal breakdown, and oil sludge problems.
  •  Possibility to extended drain intervals, with the environmental benefit of less used oil waste generated.
  •  Better lubrication during extreme cold weather starts.
  •  Possibly a longer engine life.
  •  Superior protection against "ash" and other deposit formation in engine hot spots (in particular in turbochargers and superchargers) for less oil burnoff and reduced chances of damaging oil passageway clogging.
  • Increased horsepower and torque due to less initial drag on engine.
  •  Improved Fuel Economy (FE).
