When we say synthetic oil change, we mean the regular interval of changing engine oil with synthetic oil.
What is synthetic oil?
Synthetic oil is man-made, not natural. It is a lubricant consisting of chemical compounds that are artificially made. 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 Oils-What does the company say about their products
Mobil 1 Says
Keeps your engine running like new
Mobil 1 advanced full synthetic motor oils deliver exceptional performance and protection for vehicles of all ages and for all driving conditions – normal to extreme.
Mobil 1 oils keep engines running like new by helping:
- Combat sludge and deposit buildup
- Reduce wear
- Control oil breakdown
Mobil 1 motor oils offer a full range of temperature protection: For cold starts, the oil keeps flowing as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit, and it can withstand high temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
In fact, Mobil 1 is the World’s Leading Synthetic motor oil brand, recommended by more car builders and used by more NASCAR® teams than any other brand of motor oil. What’s more, Mobil 1 oils meet or exceed the toughest standards of Japanese, European and U.S. car builders.
PurePlus Technology is our patented, revolutionary gas-to-liquid process which converts natural gas into a first-of-its-kind, high quality full synthetic base oil. Because our base oil is made from natural gas, it is clear with fewer of the impurities found in crude oil, the start for many other traditional and synthetic motor oils. To that pure, clear base we add our high-performance additives to create Pennzoil Platinum with PurePlus Technology full synthetic oil designed for complete engine protection, without compromise.
Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus Technology keeps pistons up to 30% cleaner than required by the toughest industry standard and keeps your engine cleaner than any leading synthetic oil.

How Often do we Change with Synthetic Oil?
The regularity of changing oil is based on driving conditions:
- Weather conditions-Summertime, winter season, and rainy seasons.
- Road conditions-Off-road or difficult terrain
- Load conditions-Heavy loading and light loading
- Driving distance-Far or near
- Vehicle used-is it an old one or a modern one. Is it a conditioned one or with issues like dissipation of oil?
The shortest time interval is 3,000 miles, and next is 7,500-10,000 miles and the maximum should not exceed more than 10,000 to 15,000 miles.
Why Do We Use Synthetic Oil?
First, because synthetic oil is purified, the impurities that are harmful to engines are removed.
Second, because synthetic oil is purified, naturally it will last longer, it works longer than the conventional oil.
Oils are engine coolants and they should serve the purpose properly. If they don’t your engine will overheat and when overheating occurs regularly on your engine the head gasket will be deformed, burned and cannot seal the engine oil. The result will be an oil leak from the engine. If you are not aware of it that your engine lacks oil and you drive it and when you are in a location where you cannot buy oil and you drive your car until you can buy somewhere the damage might be severe and you will incur many expenses.
Why? Not only the head gasket was burned, but the piston rings might also be broken. Or, the crankshaft might be broken too. Those are the parts that can be in danger and are easily damaged when the engine overheats for a certain time.
Thus, engine oil is very important that it should always be maintained and synthetic oils will do longer when it comes to the protection of your engine parts. Not only that it will maintain your pocket.
