Understanding the Basics About Synthetic Oil

In basic terms, synthetic oil is a product that is made from artificial chemicals. This is contrasted with traditional petroleum oil that does not contain synthetic chemicals.

Synthetic oil comes in two basic forms. First, there is synthetic oil that is blended with petroleum oil. Second, there is synthetic oil that is completely petroleum free.

One of the perceived benefits associated with synthetic oil is that it has higher viscosity than is the case of purely petroleum oil. What this means is that it is effective at higher and lower temperatures. In addition, synthetic oil is said to have less of a negative impact on the environment.
