Use AMSOIL: Synthetic Oil is Better than Conventional

Why Synthetic Oil is Better than Conventional Oil


Refining crude oil creates the mineral oil base used in conventional motor oil. The refining and distilling process to create the base oil of conventional motor oil is basic.  It is performed without any significant molecular changes to the hydrocarbons.  Essentially conventional motor oil is created through a physical process versus a chemical process used with synthetic oil.


AMSOIL Oil Change

To create the base oil for synthetic motor oil, new base oil components are derived (synthesized) in the process.  The chemical molecular changes to the base oil in the synthesis process creates a stronger base oil product.  100% of the base oil composition is comprised of the superior synthesized base in full-synthetic motor oil. In a semi-synthetic blend, the base oil is comprised of a combination of conventional and synthetic base oils.

Synthetic Oil Performs Better

Synthetic oil contains strong chemical bonds compared to conventional motor oil.  Likewise, synthetics provide improved performance and durability.  They withstand the high temperatures and pressures within engines. Compared to regular oil, synthetic oil has many advantages:

  • Better flow in cold weather.
  • High resistance to viscosity breakdown from engine heat and friction.
  • Extended times between oil changes, often 7,500 miles to 10,000 miles compared to 3,000 miles for conventional oil.
  • Though the cost per quart is somewhat higher for synthetic oils, there’s typically a cost savings due to the lesser frequency of oil changes.

AMSOIL Oil ChangeFrom a performance standpoint, synthetic oils outperform conventional oils as well:
Better low- and high-temperature viscosity performance at extreme temperatures.

  • Has better viscosity index (VI).
  • Better chemical and shear stability.
  • Decreased evaporative loss.
  • Resistance to oxidation, thermal breakdown, and oil sludge problems.
  • The environmental benefit of less used oil waste generated due to extended drain periods.
  • Better fuel economy in certain engines.
  • Improved lubrication during cold weather starts.
  • Longer engine life.
  • Superior protection against “ash” and other deposits (particularly in turbochargers and superchargers) for less oil burn-off.
  • Increased horsepower and torque due to less initial drag on engine.

Synthetics Offer Better Engine Protection

Pistons and Crank Shaft | AMSOIL Transmission Fluid and Engine OilIn most cases, synthetic oil is the better engine protection and performance choice.  AMSOIL was the first company to produce synthetics.  Moreover, it sets the standard for other companies to follow.  Likewise, AMSOIL products are independently tested by third-party labs.  Lab testing ensures quality and support performance claims.  Therefore, if you want the peace-of-mind of using the best synthetics in the industry, use AMSOIL.  Windy Acres Synthetics can guide you to the specific products best for your vehicle engines, lawn equipment, and other motors.  Likewise, the same is true requiring greases, oils, and other lubricants.
