In the last ten or so years, almost all automakers have recommended synthetic motor oil for their vehicles. At St. Lucie Battery & Tire in West Palm Beach, FL, we do oil changes with synthetic or conventional oil, and occasionally have motorists ask us if synthetic motor oil is really worth it. The answer:
An unequivocal yes.
Synthetic motor oil is more chemically stable and uniform at the molecular level. That means it retains its viscosity better across a wide range of temperatures, enhancing its lubricating properties. It’s much less prone to degradation from carbon and other contaminants and won’t break down as quickly in high heat conditions.
