Synthetic Oil Vs. Conventional Oil

Time for an oil change? Debating between conventional and synthetic oil? The service staff at Beasley Tire Service has some helpful hints for customers in Houston, TX, Kenedy, TX, San Antonio, TX, and other surrounding areas to consider before choosing between conventional synthetic oil.

The Truth About Synthetic Oil

Myth: Synthetic oil extends service intervals between oil changes.

Reality: Synthetic oil is recommended for harder working engines and motorists looking to improve gas mileage.

Myth: Switching from conventional to synthetic oil, or from synthetic to conventional oil will harm your engine.

Reality: Motorists can switch between conventional and synthetic oil as often as they want. All motor oils (conventional and synthetic) are required to meet industry standards for performance and compatibility. Always be sure to refer to your owner’s manual for viscosity and American Petroleum Institute (API) category.

What’s the Difference Between Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

Conventional oils are manufactured from crude oil through a refining process to separate and convert unwanted compounds into a base stock.

While synthetic oils are still refined from crude oil, synthetic oils use higher base stocks. Synthetic oils undergo a synthesis process that converts all molecules into the same size for a higher film strength for the ability to handle higher temperatures.

Oil | Beasley Tire Service, Inc.

Synthetic oils tend to be more expensive than conventional oil, though the advantages often outweigh price concerns for some consumers.

The benefits of synthetic oil include:

  • Maximized horsepower.
  • Improved gas mileage.
  • Smoother and cooler engine operation.
  • Prolonged engine life.

Overall, extra horsepower means that your engine will use less gas. In this way, synthetic oils provide environmentally friendly benefits, too.

Our service staff is happy to help customers choose between conventional and synthetic oil before purchasing an oil change at our shop.
