Synthetic or Conventional Oil for Your Car?

You have certainly heard about synthetic oil before, but you probably do not know what differentiates it from conventional oil. We'll give you a primer on how synthetic oil works and why we think it is a better option for your automobile.

Benefits of Synthetic Oil - Manmade Molecules

While conventional oil gets pulled from the ground and refined, synthetic oil is made in a lab. Using the latest in petroleum science, synthetic molecules are made to emulate and improve their natural counterparts. Scientists build synthetic molecular structures that are cleaner, more uniform, lighter, and smaller than those found in nature.


Synthetic oil contains no crude, meaning that there are not as many contaminants as found in natural oil pulled from the ground. Even after refining, conventional oil still deposits particles that corrode your engine and diminish performance. No crude meanssynthetic oil can last longer between oil changes, sometimes as long as 25,000 miles.

More Efficient

Because synthetic molecules are more uniform in size, they slide against each other and your engine parts more efficiently. The purpose of oil is to lubricate and protect your engine. Synthetic oil requires less energy to do its job because its molecules are also lighter and smaller than in conventional oil.

Maintains Viscosity

Synthetic oil is also more resistant to temperature, maintaining its viscosity in extreme heat or cold. Where conventional oils break down, synthetic oils keep lubricating. This reason is why synthetic oil is the choice for high performance, heavy load purposes. They better handle the higher heat of diesel engines as well.
At Progressive Products in Shoreline, WA, we can tell you all about synthetic oil and how it protects better, improves performance, and gives you peace of mind. 

We're lucky that we have the choice between synthetic oil and conventional oil, this hasn't always been the case? How old is synthetic oil? 
Synthetic oil for vehicles is not something that has hundreds of years in the market. In fact, it is relatively new, but has come a long way since its origins.  Today at Progressive Products we would like to give you some interesting bits of information regarding the history of synthetic oils.
