Synthetic Oil vs. Regular Oil: Which is Better?

oil change on a car

Does your car need an oil change? Jaguar Chandler takes pride in our ability to serve car owners from the Chandler to the Phoenix area with a wide range of auto services and expertise. If you’ve ever asked, “What’s the difference between synthetic vs. regular oil?” then keep reading to learn more, and don’t hesitate to contact us or make a service appointment.

What is Conventional Oil?

Regular oil is a petroleum-based fluid used in internal combustion engines and provides lubrication to internal parts and reduces engine wear. Motor oil is made from crude oil that comes from the ground, and it protects the engine in your new Jaguar from high temperatures.

What is Synthetic Oil?

Synthetic oil is also petroleum-based, but it provides superior lubrication properties and is more stable than conventional oil. Synthetic oil oxidizes less quickly than conventional oil and provides enhanced protective properties on Gilbert roads. Synthetic oil is chemically developed from petrochemicals to make it superior to conventional oils, but it also tends to be more expensive. When comparing synthetic oil vs. regular oil, note that synthetic motor oils also:

  • Provide enhanced engine cleaning properties
  • Are less viscous at lower temperatures
  • Protect critical turbocharger parts better

The Difference Between Full Synthetic Oil vs. Synthetic Blends

Along with synthetic oils and conventional oils, there are synthetic blends available. Synthetic blends of motor oil are made from a mix of synthetic oil and conventional oil, which reduces the cost while still providing enhanced protection.

Note: All Jaguar vehicles manufactured during and after model-year 2010 require full synthetic oil. Be sure to review your owner’s manual or contact our service team if you don’t know what kind of oil your vehicle needs.
