What is Synthetic Oil?

Owning a vehicle requires you to have a number of routine maintenance items taken care of so your vehicle runs efficiently and is reliable for many years to come. Having your oil changed is one of these routine tasks, and when you bring your vehicle in to our service center here at Maserati of Wilmington Pike or you take it somewhere else to be changed, you have the option of what kind of oil you want to use. While there are many different brands of oil, you will be choosing between conventional oil and synthetic oil. If you don't know the difference, don't worry, most people don't understand the differences either. Let's take a look:

  • Synthetic oil is man made using a variety of chemical products, whereas conventional is naturally occurring.
  • Synthetic is often more affordable than conventional oil.
  • Synthetic oil a lot of times will have less imperfections because it is made the same way each time and it passes a quality control test.

If you are unsure what type of oil to use for your vehicle, give us a call at our Chadds Ford, PA service center today to find out more.
