When Should I Use Synthetic Oil?

The advantages of using synthetic oil tell us when to use it. Synthetic motor oil lasts longer—it does not break down as quickly. Synthetic oil handles heat better than conventional motor oil. Synthetic oil flows more freely in cold temperatures than regular motor oil. The disadvantage of using synthetic motor oil is financial—synthetic oil costs two to four times more than conventional motor oil.

There are a few auto manufacturers that require using synthetic motor oil. If you own one of those vehicles, then you need to be aware and cover the added expense. If you live in a cold environment or a hot environment, the use of synthetic oil is for you. If you are towing a heavy load, use synthetic oil. If your vehicle motor is 10-years old or more, then use synthetic oil.
