The Differences in Conventional Oil, Synthetic Oil, and Semi-Synthetic Oil

At first glance, an oil change can seem intimidating with all the options available. Should you get conventional oil? Is semi-synthetic better than synthetic? What is diesel oil? Thankfully, we’ve got your back. Here’s an idea of the basics of the different types of oil:

Conventional Oil

Conventional oil gets its name from the fact that it was the standard for many years. It’s a very simple derivative of crude oil, and it keeps an engine motor cool and lubricated, to an extent. Conventional oil is always an option, but some other options might better suit you and your driving habits.

Synthetic Oil

While conventional oil is harvested and cleaned, synthetic oil is designed. That means that synthetic oil is made specifically for every conceivable situation your engine could go through, and it’s filled with chemical additives that help it lubricate and cool your engine. These chemical additives are also designed for your car, so there are many different synthetic oil options available.

Semi-Synthetic Oil

Semi-synthetic oil is a blend of synthetic and conventional oil. Depending on the mix, it can be more tailored to specific engine conditions, and it can be a little lower in price since it’s not all synthetic. Ask our certified team to know what’s right for your car!
