Conventional Oil

This is your basic bare-bones engine oil, ranging in viscosity and quality from blend to blend. In the old days, when motor oil was first being used, every type of lubricant imaginable was added to the mixture, from crude oils to animal fats. As such, concepts such as quality consistency were figments of the imagination. 

Today, we’ve decided to leave the animal fat alone but a conventional oil is still made up of a number of mineral extracts and meets the basic recommended specifications for engine lubrication, it doesn’t have any of the benefits that synthetic oil does. In fact, with conventional motor oil, one can count on a few baseline facts:

  • The oil is less chemically stable than a synthetic mixture.
  • It breaks down quicker.
  • It has a lower tolerance for resisting acidification.

If given the option while waiting on a car repair, we recommend you request synthetic oil. 

Synthetic Oil

The differences between synthetic oil and conventional oil are well documented. Synthetic oil derives from more high-quality components, mixing base oils with additives that allow the blend to do more than simply lubricate the various parts of the engine. 

In general, oil manufacturers take greater pains when making synthetic blends to remove impurities from the mixture. This has a compounding effect when added to an engine. Synthetic oil is known for:

  • Being an overall better lubricant
  • Leaving less dirty residue behind
  • Working better in extreme temperatures

By choosing a synthetic blend, you may recognize that you aren’t required to bring your car to our Provo car repair center as often. This is because the more high-quality mixture is rated for longer intervals between changes. In many cases, you can triple the amount of time you drive before needing to bring the car back to Master Muffler for an oil change.
