What’s the Difference Between Synthetic Oil vs. Regular Oil?

Rochester drivers often ask, “What is synthetic oil?” Synthetic oil consists of a base oil, powder additives, and a carrier oil that allows the additives to be distributed evenly. Similar to regular oil, it’s made from refined crude oils. The main difference between synthetic oil vs. regular oil is the amount of refining involved. Synthetic oil is refined, distilled, purified, and broken down at the molecular level, giving it several advantages over conventional oils

  • Less friction due to similar molecule sizes 
  • Reduced deposits 
  • Cleaner engine operation due to additives 
  • Higher performance in extreme climates 
  • Fewer impurities in the final product
