Synthetic Oil vs Conventional

Conventional and synthetic oil are both manufactured from crude oil.  The refining process is same, however synthetic oils go through an additional process that result in higher film strength that handle higher temperatures better.

The cost for a synthetic oil change is often more expensive than conventional due to the extra processing that occurs; however, the result is often a better performance and longer life of the engine.  Ask our technicians what the right choice is for your engine.
