What is Considered Synthetic Oil?

You may be like many motorists and not fully understand the difference between petroleum oil and synthetic oil. You may not even be certain what type of oil you use in your car.

In essential terms, synthetic oil consists of chemicals not associated with petroleum oil. Synthetic oil is available that does include these chemicals combined with petroleum oil. In addition, there are synthetic oil products that contain only artificial chemicals and not petroleum.

Some people select synthetic based on the contention that it is better for the environment. There is also evidence to suggest that synthetic oil maintains a higher viscosity in extreme temperatures.
