inspecting oil of quality used car at the auto connection

When it comes to getting the best performance out of your quality used car, the oil you choose is a big decision. Should you go for conventional or synthetic oil? Let’s take a closer look at both options.

Conventional oil, because of its composition, has a shorter lifespan than synthetic oil. Which means if you’re using conventional, you’ll need to change your oil more often. Synthetic oil, on the other hand, contains fewer additives, which means there’s less to oxidize and vaporize, giving synthetic oil a longer lifespan. In terms of performance, according to studies conducted by AAA, synthetic oil outperforms conventional oil by a margin of nearly 50%. The study also suggests that synthetic oil can give your quality used car’s engine a longer life. Something to keep in mind: This increase in performance comes with a higher price tag.

Ultimately, the choice between synthetic and conventional oil is a personal preference. However, we recommend sticking with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
