What Is Synthetic Oil?
Synthetic oil is a lubricant consisting of chemical compounds that are artificially made (synthesized). Synthetic lubricants can be manufactured using chemically modified petroleum components rather than whole crude oil, but can also be synthesized from other raw materials. Synthetic oil is used as a substitute for lubricant refined from petroleum when operating in extremes of temperature, because, in general, it provides superior mechanical and chemical properties than those found in traditional mineral oils. Aircraft jet engines, for example, require the use of synthetic oils, whereas aircraft piston engines do not.
The first real synthetic engine oils appeared for aircraft engines in World War II because synthetic oils made engine starting in winter easier and significantly decreased soot deposits in oil radiators. Although used in the aviation and aerospace industries beginning in the early 1950s, the first synthetic oil developed for automotive combustion engines and fully recognized by the American Petroleum Institute (API) was produced by the Hatco Corp. in 1972 as per specific specification requirements by Albert J. Amatuzio, current President and CEO of Amsoil Inc. Today Amsoil Inc. markets a full line of API (category IV)-licensed synthetic motor oil and many other API (category IV) PAO base oil formulations that are claimed by Amsoil to meet or exceed current API requirements.
“Synthetic has a better shear capability, better cling, and thermal breakdown is an issue in a daily driver. More so if it’s a turbo car. Other advantages include much lower pour point, much less viscosity change over time, and flat-out better lubricity. All of these are quite advantageous indeed–even in daily drivers. That lower pour point is particularly good–it means that oil gets where it needs to be much more rapidly after a cold start, especially in very cold weather. … Thermal breakdown manifests itself as sludge and that tar like stuff that comes out of your crankcase every 3k miles. It happens on daily drivers! If you’re not driving in conditions that let you take advantage of the lower pour point of synthetic oil, then you’re most likely driving in conditions that let you take advantage of the resistance to thermal breakdown. Synthetic by design is less prone to breakdown, and does not need the quantity of additives necessary to make dino juice an “effective” oil. Synthetic is much less prone to cooking and less prone to varnish than conventional oil.”
“Oil additives do not deteriorate over time–only over usage. Some modes of usage are harder on oil than others. Lots of short trips put lots of water and acid, etc. in the oil, and things never get hot enough to boil off these contaminants. —allpar.com
- Measurably better low- and high-temperature viscosity performance at service temperature extremes
- Better chemical & shear stability
- Decreased evaporative loss
- Resistance to oxidation, thermal breakdown, and oil sludge problems
- Extended drain intervals with the environmental benefit of less oil waste.
- Improved fuel economy in certain engine configurations.
- Better lubrication during extreme cold weather starts
- Longer engine life
- Superior protection against “ash” and other deposit formation in engine hot spots (in particular in turbochargers and superchargers) for less oil burnoff and reduced chances of damaging oil passageway clogging.
