TYPES OF MOTOR OIL AND RECOMMENDED USE
Types of Motor Oil
Motor oil can be segmented into four basic varieties—synthetic oil, synthetic blends, high mileage oil, and conventional oil.

Synthetic Motor Oil

Synthetic motor oil has gone through a chemically engineered process. Synthetic oil molecules are more uniform in shape with fewer impurities and better properties than conventional oil molecules. In general, synthetic oil has better extreme high temperature and low temperature performance. Synthetic oils are generally formulated with higher performing additives.

Synthetic Blend Motor Oil

Synthetic blend motor oil uses a mixture of synthetic and conventional base oils for added resistance to oxidation (compared to conventional oil) and provide excellent low-temperature properties.

High-Mileage Motor Oil

High-mileage motor oil is specially formulated for late model vehicles or newer vehicles with over 75,000 miles. High mileage motor oil, with its unique additives and formulation, helps to reduce oil burn-off, and helps prevent oil leaks that may occur in older engines.
Conventional Motor Oil

Conventional motor oils can be formulated in a range of viscosity grades and quality levels. Conventional motor oil is recommended for drivers with simple engine designs and regular (as opposed to severe) driving styles.

What is Synthetic Motor Oil?

Although there are several different manufacturing processes used for synthesizing synthetic motor oils, all of them begin by using raw ingredients extracted from underground resources. While conventional oils are then transported and then refined, synthetic oils are distilled and “cracked” into their component molecules. This process allows impurities to be removed from the crude oil, and today’s advanced cutting-edge chemical technologies allow engineers to re-engineer the basic molecules into precision formulas perfectly tailored to modern vehicle engines. Most major manufacturers of synthetic motor oils then carefully work to blend special additives to create the perfect oil to meet the demand of today’s high-powered engines.

Top-quality synthetic motor oils are better able to resist more demanding atmospheric conditions, and provide much better protection in cold-weather starts than conventional motor oils. By absorbing heavy metal contaminants and sludge particles, synthetic motor oils prevent and dissolve toxic build-ups in critical engine components.

During and immediately after the global conflict known as World War 2, the exigent needs of the combatant pushed humanity’s scientists to new heights. Breakthroughs in chemical science led to the creation of synthetic, and partially synthetic, oils. Offering a wide bevy of advantages over traditional refined petroleum or natural mineral oils, including greater resistance to extreme temperatures, enhanced protection against ash deposit formations in engine hotspots, and dramatic improvements in horsepower and greater torque on the engine.

By removing heat, heavy metal components and other contaminants from critical engine parts, today’s advanced synthetic motor oils protect high-performance vehicle engines from toxic build-ups of sludge and other corrosive elements. By using custom molecular formulas with enhanced high-lubrication esters, synthetic motor oils work to reduce exhaust filter blocking and can dramatically reduce wear and tear on high-performance automobile engines.

What are the different types of Synthetic Oil?

Every major manufacturer of synthetic motor oils use carefully guarded corporate trade secret processes to distill, refine and carefully blend their proprietary formulas. That being said, all synthetic motor oils consist of synthesized petroleum products, including chemically-modified petroleum components, instead of whole crude oil. Generally speaking, synthetic motor oil is composed of far more esters, by weight, than traditional motor oils, dramatically increasing the lubricating power of the oil.

Just as with traditional motor oils, synthetic motor oils are rated by viscosity, an industry metric that describes the oil’s change of viscosity with variations in temperature. The Society of Automotive Engineers has established the most commonly-used scale for grading motor oils according to viscosity, using traditional gradings (from low to high viscosity) of: 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 and 50. The first four viscosity gradings (0, 5, 10, 15 and 25) are usually suffixed with the letter W to indicate that they are designed to be used in winter and cold climate atmospheric conditions.

Synthetic oils graded at viscosity 20 are divided into blends designed for summer or warm weather use and W20 grade oils that are better suited to cold-start conditions.
