Using a synthetic oil could be better for your engine and in the long run, for your pocket.
Throughout history, as a community of consumption, we have preferred the natural over the synthetic, thinking that this is better than the other, however, at least as regards lubricating oil for engine, this might not be real.
First we will tell you that the use of natural oil does not benefit the environment at all because it is extracted from oil, so it has certain specific characteristics.
On the contrary, synthetic oil has different qualities because it is developed in the laboratory, it is usually more resistant, withstands higher temperatures and does not lose its molecular consistency.
These characteristics make them respond better under any circumstance, but we better tell you five keys that will clarify this topic better.
- If you travel a few distances, natural oils do not achieve an adequate temperature, they degrade faster and cause greater wear on the machine, which is not the case with synthetics.
- Synthetic oils have greater resistance to extreme oxidation and also better efficiency when collecting waste from the engine.
- Besides working much better in extreme temperatures, they have a longer active duration, and prevent a greater friction of the parts of the engine since their molecules are uniform.
- They protect the engine parts better because they withstand high temperatures, besides they do not contain waxes that solidify and prevent their free flow.
- Perhaps your initial price seems higher than that of natural oil, but in the long term they are cheaper since their change will be at longer intervals of time.
- * Before making a change in oil type, consult your owner’s manual to find out which is the best option for your vehicle.
