Is Synthetic Oil Better?
Yes, synthetic oil is considerably better than conventional. While some synthetic oil does start from crude oil (which is also the source of conventional), the end product is remarkably different. Synthetic oil has been changed at a molecular level, giving it an even structure that’s free of impurities. This allows it to flow more easily through your engine, providing exceptional lubrication. It works better in the cold and in the high heat of your engine at its operating temperature. What’s more, synthetic oil includes additives that help keep your engine cleaner than conventional oil does.
How Often Does My Chevy Need a Synthetic Oil Change?
We mentioned that synthetic oil holds up to heat better than conventional oil. This means that it won’t break down as quickly, so you can go longer between oil changes! At Ourisman Chevrolet of Rockville, we recommend having a synthetic oil change performed only once a year or every 10,000 miles (whichever one comes first).
