Depending on the European automobile that you drive, you might already put synthetic oil in it. Let’s talk about the benefits that this motor oil type would bring to your car or crossover if you don’t. East Coast EuroWerks specializes in European automobile maintenance and repair. We offer a full line of synthetic motor oils to our customers because we know how much better this motor oil is for their cars. Synthetic versus conventional? There really isn’t any contest. Here’s why.
What’s the Difference?
Let’s start with the basic differences between the two oil types. Conventional oil is made from crude that is extracted from the ground. It is refined, but imperfections are easily found in conventional oil because it’s organic, i.e., it isn’t manmade. Synthetic oil is – you guessed it – manmade. It is refined in laboratories to be the purest motor oil you can buy. This means less sludge is deposited in your engine. It also contains additives that help it retain its viscosity longer. More on that below.
Your European automobile’s engine is high-performance, even if you don’t drive a Lamborghini. For decades, European automobile manufacturers have designed fuel-efficient engines yet can handle the Autobahn and other high-speed highways. This means you’ve got a lot of horsepower under the hood and a need for better protection. Synthetic oil is designed to perform better in high-speed, high-performance engines. It remains viscous under higher engine temperatures.
It also remains viscous and protects engines better in older cars and automobiles driving in extreme weather conditions. We don’t really have to worry about that here in Wilmington, NC, but if you’re planning a holiday travel to a freezing climate, you’ll want the protection that synthetic offers. It won’t freeze up in temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, which means it will begin to circulate through your engine faster once you start your vehicle.
Pays for Itself
Yes, synthetic oil can be more expensive than conventional oil is, but the better oil of the two pays for itself in performance and oil changes. Depending on the European automobile you drive, you can extend the miles between oil changes to 10,000 miles or even 15,000 miles in some BMW models. This washes out the added cost for synthetic motor oil. You will have had three conventional oil changes by the time you reach 10,000 miles, and that costs a lot more than one synthetic oil change.
