If you’re thinking about what is the best stuff to put in your car, then congratulations! First of all, you’ve got a car, which is good. Second of all, you’ve got enough money to actually be concerned about what you put in your car, as opposed to being someone who doesn’t really have enough money to be too picky about those things. Which is nice. So, on to the real question: is it better to put natural or synthetic oil in your car?
First, a small digression on what the oil actually is. Car oil, in this case, oil used to lubricate the parts in the internal combustion engine of an automobile. This promotes the smooth running of the engine, and makes sure that your car can scoot along smoothly. Therefore, whichever oil can better lubricate the engine better is probably the one that you want to get. But surprise! That’s not the only issue to consider. You should also consider things like duration of proper use, any residue that these oils might leave, and so on.
So which kind of oil should you use? Well, each of these have their respective benefits. For example, the oils made from natural minerals are usually much less expensive than the synthetic ones. This quality makes these oils a better option for the more frugal among us. The synthetic oils, on the other hand, have the distinction of being, in general, of a better quality. For example, these oils usually function much more efficiently under high temperatures than do the oils derived from natural minerals. Additionally, these oils will lend towards greater horsepower in these engines, for various reasons. However, the synthetic oils do have several disadvantages - for example, they have a greater chance of cracking or damaging any plastic components in the engine, and are far less appropriate for industrial uses.
So which of these should you use? Well, in general, if you have the money to afford the synthetic oil (and are not in the industrial world), then that type is a pretty good option. However, if you’re a thrifty person, then perhaps you should go for the regular motor oil.
