Your used vehicle should have its oil changed about every 8,000 Kms.  How many, though, really think about that, or if they should use synthetic or conventional oil? 

What do you think?  At Discount Motor City, one of the premier used car dealerships, Surrey, we provide some thoughts on the subject.

What is the difference?

What is the difference between conventional and synthetic oil? Are there any benefits one way or the other?  Is it worth the extra cost?  The difference between conventional and synthetic oil is all about the origins.

Conventional oil, we all know where that comes from.  It all began a long time ago, beginning before dinosaurs walked on this earth, with a build-up of organic material under layers of sediment.  In making the oil, up to 40% of the volume are typically oil-blend additives that break down over time, making the conventional oil ineffective in protecting your engine.

Synthetic oil began as a World War II experiment, leading to today, where it is synthesized from methane, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.  Synthetic oil has fewer additives, which makes it much more stable over time of use, allowing for extended times between oil changes.

What About Cost and Benefits?

Is the added cost of synthetic oil worth it?  It does cost significantly more than conventional oil, but many studies have shown that synthetic oil keeps engines in better condition than conventional oil.  Better engine conditions result in a longer running and happier engine.  If those things are important to you, then maybe, have a look at using synthetic oil.

And, while on the subject of cost and benefits, why not check out one of our past blogs on what you can do to help your car. CLICK HERE

What Should You Use?
