Synthetic Vs. Conventional Oil: Do You Know Which One is in Your Vehicle?

Many people who bring their vehicle in for their regular oil changes ask the mechanic for the oil change, but do you know what they are putting in your vehicle's engine? If you've never thought about it, you might be interested in knowing that there are two main types of oil: conventional and synthetic.

So if there are different kinds of oil, what is the difference? Also, is one better than the other? The basic difference between these two main types of oils is quite simple to explain. Conventional oil is primarily made with natural oil but has synthetic additives. Synthetic oil is entirely man-made materials.

One isn't necessarily better than the other, but synthetic oil offers more lubrication and is often used in most cars. On the other hand, there are vehicles that, under certain driving conditions, might actually perform better with conventional oil.
