Full Synthetic Oil Change at Springfield Xpress Lube
If your car deserves the very best, a full synthetic oil change is a must. (Some vehicles require full synthetic oil. Using different oil could void your warranty. European cars and hybrids typically require full synthetic oil.)
Full synthetic oil was originally used in race cars. Now it’s gone mainstream, especially in sports cars and other high-performance vehicles.
Fully synthetic oil has 3 main advantages to conventional oil and synthetic blends:
- Better performance, including higher fuel economy
- Lasting longer than conventional oil (potentially prolonging oil changes)
- Functioning better at high temperatures
What Is Synthetic Oil?
Synthetic oil is chemically manufactured to be superior to conventional oil. Molecules are customized in a lab to be more consistently sized. That increases the oil’s film strength and helps it work better at high temperatures. It also protects your engine extremely well against deposits.
Synthetic oil has excellent lubricating properties. Full synthetic oil is recommended in harder working engines.
Customers often ask us about synthetic oil. Here are some quick FAQs: First, you can switch between conventional and synthetic oil with no damage to your engine. Also, synthetic oil is safe for all rubber engine seals, doesn’t increase oil consumption, and is compatible with all types of oil filters. It’s an all-around excellent choice.
Here are a few reasons people choose a full synthetic oil change:
If you drive a sports car or other performance-oriented vehicle, you will lov
e how it runs with full synthetic oil. Because it uses better friction modifiers than conventional oil, synthetic oil is stronger and more slippery, which is easier on the engine. This premium lubrication protects your engine better, prolonging your engine’s life. You get more horsepower, a more efficient engine, and better gas mileage.
Full synthetic oil doesn’t break down as quickly as conventional oil. It can extend how long you go between oil changes (read your owner’s manual for the proper mileage between oil changes.)
Better in All Temperatures
Engine heat is responsible for a lot of wear and tear. Full synthetic oil helps your engine stay cool and operate smoothly, even at high temperatures. This helps extend your engine’s life.
Which Cars Need Full Synthetic Oil?
Toyota hybrids (such as the Prius), Honda hybrids, and certain new Subarus require full synthetic oil. So do fine European vehicles such as new and late-model BMWs, Mercedes-Benzes, Audis, and Volkswagens. Many high-performance cars require full synthetic oil. (Note: Rotary engines should not use synthetic oil.) Check your owner’s manual.
