Regular Oil vs. Synthetic Oil

Difference between regular oil and synthetic oil

Motor oil is an essential element to ensure the smooth functioning of motor engine.  It not only keeps the engine cool but also eliminates and protects the engine from debris and dust.  Traditional or regular oil is made of crude oil. However, for a proper use as motor oil, it is refined and some other chemicals are added to increase its suitability as engine oil. With additives, the viscosity, protection and lubrication abilities and break down properties are increased.

Like regular oil, synthetic oil is made of additives and base oil. The only difference is the base oil is not crude but processed in labs which give a different sizes and weight to the molecules of oil whereas the molecules of regular oil despite of refinement are of different sizes and weight. Moreover, the impurities and wax added in synthetic oil to enhance the lubrication are lesser. As the molecules of oil are consistent in size and shapes, the viscosity of synthetic oil is higher than regular oil. It is stable and maintains its viscosity in even higher range of temperatures.

Regular oil, on the other hand, poses initial starting problems as its cool. It gets warm during the process. However, because of friction buster, the synthetic oil performs well on even cool temperatures. It gives an engine the much desired boost, enhances its protection and reduces the breakdown of oil in high temperatures. By using a suitable brand of synthetic oil, you get improved mileage and reduced debris deposits on engine. When, the engine is not as new as before it is better to use synthetic oil to provide better protection. On engine, the debris is collected as wax and synthetic oil break out this wax and increases the performance.  In big cities, where vehicle owners have to face in driving in traffic jams, the performance and temperature of vehicles can be maintained by synthetic oil.  For better results, it is better to use synthetic oil from the beginning.
