Synthetic Motor Oil vs. Conventional Motor Oil
Synthetic motor oil typically performs better than conventional motor oil in providing protection for your vehicle. What’s the real difference between synthetic and conventional oil? Pretty much everything. Both oils come from the ground, but that’s where the similarities end.
Synthetic motor oil is not only refined but also distilled, purified and broken down into its basic molecules. This process not only removes more impurities from crude oil but also enables individual molecules in the oil to be tailored to the demands of modern engines. These customized molecules provide higher levels of protection and performance than conventional oils.
Mobil 1™ is an advanced fully synthetic motor oil that has a unique, balanced formulation to keep your engine running like new. There are multiple benefits providing more protection for you vehicle when using Mobil 1 synthetic oil over conventional motor oil.
- Keep your engine cleaner
As oil circulates through your engine it can pick up deposits. Over time, conventional oils can sometimes form sludge, which can reduce your engine’s efficiency and, ultimately, reduce the life of your engine. Mobil 1 motor oils contain fewer impurities compared to conventional motor oils and can better resist the formation of sludge.
- Offer greater engine wear protection
Engine parts are in constant contact with each other and moving at high speeds. As conventional oils break down, their ability to prevent engine wear diminishes. Mobil 1 motor oils, on the other hand, retain their wear protection properties for a much longer time, increasing engine life.
- Flow better in low temperatures
It takes more time for conventional oils to flow through critical engine parts during cold winter months. Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil, however, is engineered to flow quickly even at low temperatures, and start protecting your engine right after you start your car.
- Protect better at high temperatures
When running, engines are hot and over time, the high temperatures in your engine can cause conventional motor oils to break down or evaporate exposing your engine to wear. Mobil 1 motor oils are engineered to resist these high temperatures, which is especially important if you’re driving in hot climates.
- Protect critical turbocharger parts
Some automakers are building cars with smaller engines for greater fuel efficiency but adding turbochargers to boost power. Turbocharged engines run even hotter traditional engines and conventional oils can break down faster under these conditions. Mobil 1 motor oils can protect these components much better, keeping them operating at peak performance and boosting your engine’s power.
