How Does Synthetic Oil Differ from Conventional Oil?

Motor oil protects your engine from friction and impurities.. Synthetic oil differs from conventional oil in that it’s not only refined but also distilled. Furthermore, in processing, it’s purified and stripped down to prime molecules. In treating synthetic motor oil in this way, bad contaminants are removed from it while molecules that protect the engines of late-model cars are retained.

Synthetic motor oil—compared to conventional oil—inhibits the formation of sludge in the engine better. Other advantages include that it flows more quickly throughout your engine in low temperatures and doesn’t break down as quickly at high temperatures. Turbochargers increase the power engines. it allows automakers to use a smaller, more fuel-efficient engine. However, turbochargers demand synthetic oil, a workhorse motor oil.
