How to choose a synthetic oil?

How is synthetic oil made

We have already delved into the benefits of synthetic oil for your car, and how its use results in longer life of the lubricating oil. For further info, click here: how is synthetic oil made


This means a significant reduction in friction generated by the metal components of the car, which translates into savings when changing the oil in the car, as well as a longer service life of the components, so you should not buy engine parts.


Deciding which lubricating oil is suitable for your car has to do with variables such as: model, engine power, mileage and several more elements that we will mention below:


New cars


Today new cars today have processes of settling the engine from the plant, instead of after the purchase as was the custom many years ago: not to exceed 3,000 rpm for the first thousand kilometers. However, many cars still run the risk of spilling metal surpluses in the first few kilometers of operation.


Therefore, we recommend a synthetic motor oil designed for new cars as it will not take so long to cover the entire engine thanks to its multigrade characteristics, so they will protect the engine even if there are metallic surpluses inside the engine and that could plug a circulation. There are synthetic lubricating oils developed specifically for new cars .


Synthetic oil in cars with high mileage


There are myths that suggest that synthetic oils, because they have a lower viscosity, can pass between the most established engine seals, so they do not provide the same protection to engine components. This is completely false : multigrade lubricating oil provides greater protection to the components and does it from the beginning, regardless of the weather conditions.


Synthetic oil can circulate inside the engine more easily when the engine is cold, when weather conditions do not help a higher viscosity lubricant get to the right temperature for easy circulation. This reduces unnecessary strain on the oil pump, which will have to work harder to bring cold oil to the entire engine.


Supercharged engines


A turbo charger or supercharger in a car is designed to inject a greater amount of air into the combustion chamber, which requests a greater amount of fuel and enters it in a compressed form, giving it more power. This also means that the engine will run at higher temperatures, requiring more effort from the lubricating oil.


The lubricating oils of mineral origin not have much resistance to overwork, so lose their lubricating properties using a motor with any type supercharger, so it is recommended to use a synthetic lubricating oil high performance .
