Full Synthetic Oil Change at Scappoose Xpress Lube
A full synthetic oil change is one of the best things you can do for your vehicle. (For some cars like hybrids and European cars, it’s required; using different oil could void the warranty.)
Originally, full synthetic oil was only used in racing vehicles. Now everyone from sports car drivers to classic auto owners swear by it. Here’s why people choose full synthetic oil:
- It maximizes performance and gas mileage
- You might not have to get your oil changed as often
- It provides excellent lubrication even at high temperatures
What Is Synthetic Oil?
Synthetic, or manufactured, oil is created in a lab to function better than conventional oil. The molecules in full synthetic oil all have a uniform size, which makes the oil stronger and perform better at all temperatures. For hard-working engines, a full synthetic oil change is recommended.
Thanks to synthetic oil’s top-notch lubrication, it also guards against engine deposits -- which can damage your engine, cause lower gas mileage, and make you fail DEQ.
If you’ve never had a full synthetic oil change before, you might have some questions. First, know that switching between synthetic oil and conventional oil will not damage your engine (unless only full synthetic is recommended). Second, full synthetic oil works with all types of oil filters and all rubber engine seals. And contrary to myth, it does not increase oil consumption.
Here are more details on the benefits of a full synthetic oil change:
Sports car aficionados prefer full synthetic oil. It delivers more horsepower, higher gas mileage, and higher engine efficiency. That’s because its friction modifiers are superior to conventional oil, making it stronger and more slippery. That creates less wear and tear on the engine and helps your engine last longer.
Conventional oil breaks down faster than full synthetic oil. As a result, you can go longer between oil changes (consult your owner’s manual for the recommended mileage between oil changes.)
Better in All Temperatures
Full synthetic oil works better in low temperatures than conventional oil. It also resists high temperatures better, not thinning as much when hot. This helps extend your engine’s lifespan by ensuring it operates smoothly and stays cool.
Which Vehicles Need Full Synthetic Oil?
Racecars, motorcycles, and other high-performance vehicles typically need full synthetic oil. So do Honda and Toyota hybrids and some newer Subaru models. Fine European automobiles like those by Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW often require full synthetic oil changes. If your car has a rotary engine, however, do not use synthetic oil. Once again, look in your owner’s manual for manufacturer recommendations.
