Synthetic Oil for Center Line Autos

Posted April 16, 2017 9:12 AM

If you are a driver in Center Line and you aren't currently using synthetic motor oil in your vehicle, maybe now's the time to consider it. Need more information? Well, synthetic motor oil is a substitute for petroleum based oil.

Synthetic oil doesn't gel or gum-up like petroleum based oil and it doesn't vaporize as easily. It protects better in severe driving conditions like stop and go driving around Center Line, as well as in very hot or very cold conditions. More and more new vehicles are being delivered with full synthetic motor oil, with the recommendation to use synthetic for the life of the vehicle.

Why is this? Synthetic motor oil maximizes engine power and fuel economy. To see why, we'd need a microscope, so we'll have to settle for using our imaginations.

The molecules of conventional motor oil are long hydrocarbon chains. Synthetic motor oil, on the other hand, has uniform, round molecules. Which is more slippery, a pile of pencils or a pile of marbles?

Synthetic motor oil lubricates better because there's less friction. That means better wear protection, cooler operating temperatures, more power and better fuel economy. And synthetic oil doesn't sludge up like conventional oil, so it prevents those small oil passages from clogging up.

Some manufacturers are extending oil change intervals. The added protection of synthetic oil covers you for these longer intervals. Talk with your service advisor about how you drive and see if he thinks you can benefit from synthetic oil. Also ask about the appropriate oil change interval for synthetic, because it may very well be longer than for conventional oil.

Most of us here in Center Line have a busy life and might occasionally miss an oil change; go ahead, admit it. Since we're not perfect, doesn't it make sense to use a motor oil that's got your back?

Now synthetic oil costs more. But it lasts longer, protects better and increases fuel economy. You'll likely save money in the long run. If you're serious about making your car last longer, start using synthetic motor oil right away.

Give us a call to schedule an oil change, or visit us at our Mac's Tire & Auto Repair website.

Testimonials

  • Honesty, What makes this place great is their honesty. I feel very comfortable taking my vehicle to Mac's knowing they aren't going to rip me off for repairs I don't need.
    -Cindy T.

  • Another great experience! I have been bringing my car here for service for some time now. Fortunately, I have a vehicle that has held up very well (209,000 miles and counting), but when something does go wrong, I know exactly where to bring it. Mac's Tire & Auto Repair has always been forthright and honest with me; they WILL NOT try to sell you something you don't need. My most recent visit required new brakes, rotors & calipers on the front end. This isn't a cheap job, no matter where you get it done, but I must say, I don't think my brakes were this good even when the car was new. Money very well spent. Keep up the good work!
