Bommarito Honda Superstore is proud to provide oil change service to Hazelwood, Florissant, and the rest of the St. Louis Metro Area. We believe that your Honda deserves only the best, which is why we recommend using synthetic oil when you get oil changes. Some engines require synthetic oil, but even the ones that don’t can benefit from it. Find out more below, or schedule your appointment now.
Conventional oil is a petroleum product derived from crude oil. While some synthetic oil uses crude oil as a base, other types don’t involve crude oil at all. The biggest difference is that synthetic oil is more highly refined, ridding it of impurities and giving it an even molecular size and structure. This gives the oil a lower viscosity. In addition, synthetic oil includes extra detergent additives that aren’t always present in conventional oil.
Studies from groups like AAA have shown that synthetic oil performs much better than conventional oil. It handles both heat and cold better than conventional oil. Due to its lower viscosity, synthetic oil flows more easily, and it’s even capable of handling short trips better. Its structure protects it from the high heat in the engine and helps it resist breakdown for longer, and its lack of impurities and detergent additives can help resist the buildup of sludge, and can even clean your engine!
One of the things that put people off of synthetic oil is that it is notably more expensive than conventional oil–at least when you look at the up-front cost. But when you take a bigger view, that might not be the case. Because it resists breaking down much better than conventional oil, you can go longer between oil changes when you use synthetic. In addition, it keeps your engine cleaner, which means that you may even get improved longevity from your vehicle.
