Understand the difference between conventional and synthetic motor oil

Do you know what kind of oil to put in your vehicle’s engine? When choosing between conventional, synthetic blend, and synthetic motor oil, it’s important to know the differences.

Conventional oil contains base oils with additives to improve its performance. Synthetic oil is designed from specific molecules to deliver optimal performance. Synthetic blend oil is a mixture of synthetic and conventional oils. Synthetic oil is designed to flow easily when your engine is cold and resist thermal breakdown when your engine is hot. This is especially important if you operate your vehicle in extreme temperatures, or if you frequently make your engine work hard by towing and hauling.

Newer engines are often designed specifically for synthetic oil. Our team at Planet FIAT in Miami can tell you what kind of oil your engine needs, and help you decide which oil to choose. Schedule a service appointment with us today.
