Synthetic oil brings with it a blend of chemical compounds that get the most out of petroleum molecules. This process enables an optimal level of lubrication for those internal engine parts working under extreme stress.

Synthetic oil tends to have a higher price-point than conventional oil, but in exchange it lasts longer so with synthetic oil you end up needing oil changes less frequently. In the long run, this means synthetic oil is often more cost effective than conventional.
