We've all heard the commercials and read the ads that talk about conventional and synthetic oil. But have you ever taken the time to really even understand the difference and what the two types of oils offer that are different from each other? Knowing your options is always better than not understanding what is available. For a quick break-down of the two kinds of oils, read on.

Synthetic oil is made in a lab from entirely man-made materials. Conventional oil, on the other hand, is made with mostly natural oil, with synthetic additives. The benefit of conventional oil is that it is less expensive than synthetic oil and it lubricates newer vehicles very adequately. Although synthetic oil is more expensive, it is better for vehicles that have more miles because it offers a higher level of lubrication than a conventional oil.
