Today's motor oils aren't what they used to be many years ago. One type of motor oil you've likely heard about is synthetic. What exactly is synthetic oil and how does it differ from regular oil?

Synthetic oil is a blend of chemical compounds originally developed in a lab. Researchers identified the compounds that would best protect an automotive engine long-term. Then, they created a blend of compounds that maximized the protection levels. This oil offers superior protection for engines, with less loss to evaporation, more resistance to thermal breakdown, and a higher viscosity index.

The downside to synthetic oil is that it is more expensive than regular oil. That's why synthetic blends have become popular. They combine synthetic with regular oil. They offer better protection than regular oil, without the price of pure synthetic.
