Synthetic motor oil is a vehicle lubricant that is artificially created through synthesis of petroleum with various chemical compounds. Synthetic motor oil can handle the extreme temperatures that exist in modern engines, ensuring the efficiency of the engine.
Synthetic oil typically cost more when compared to conventional oil, but that is due to its efficiency and benefits. Synthetic oil costs much less in the long run due to its longer oil change interval. Conventional oil must be changed more often in order to maintain its efficiency.
Synthetic oils can also handle extreme temperatures. The additives that are contained in synthetic oils are much more efficient at trapping heat than conventional oils. This heat reduction prevents vehicles from overheating, reduces normal wear and tear on an engine and can save your thousands on vehicle maintenance costs throughout the life of your vehicle.
Synthetic oils typically perform better than conventional oils, making your vehicle more efficient, which can improve your vehicle’s fuel economy. Regularly changing your vehicle’s synthetic motor oil allows your vehicle to run at peak performance, which gives you the maximum fuel economy out of your vehicle.
Not all synthetic oils are created equal. PEAK® provides the highest quality, full synthetic motor oil to ensure that your vehicle operates at maximum efficiency. PEAK® full synthetic oils handle high temperatures, damaging engine deposits, cold weather, engine wear and tough start up friction.
PEAK® offers the best synthetic oil on the market. PEAK® Full Synthetic Motor Oil exceeds North American warranty requirements for U.S., European and Japanese cars and light trucks with gasoline and gasoline turbocharged engines where API SN, SL, SJ or SH are specified, and meets the highest U.S. standards for automotive engine wear protection.
Synthetic oil is manufactured by chemically modifying crude oil components by combining engine performance additives.
Synthetic oil change intervals can occur anywhere between 5,000 miles and 15,000 miles depending on the make and model of your vehicle. On average, synthetic oil changes can occur every 10,000 miles. For an average driver, that’s about 1 oil change every year, a huge difference when compared to conventional motor oil.
If you are unsure of your last oil change, you can do a visual check of your synthetic motor oil to determine if it is time for an oil change. Once synthetic motor oil begins to appear black in color, it may be time for an oil change. Click here to visit the PEAK® DIY hub and learn more about oil changes.
Synthetic oil can last as long as 15,000 miles, depending on your vehicle’s make and model. Check with your owner’s manual to determine the correct oil change interval for your vehicle. Synthetic oil change intervals are longer than conventional oil change intervals.
Yes, synthetic oil performs much better than conventional oil. Synthetic oil reduces wear and tear on your vehicle, improves fuel economy, prevents overheating and ensures your vehicle is performing to the best of its ability.
Yes, you can safely mix synthetic oil with regular conventional oil, however, it is not recommended. Combining different types of oils with different additives may have chemical effects that either destabilize or neutralize the oil, reducing the overall efficiency of the oil. All motor oils are derived from the combination of base oils and additives.
