You may have wondered why some people suggest getting synthetic oil in your vehicle. What is it and why is it helpful? Well, synthetic oil takes advantage of artificially made chemical compounds. The base material is typically distilled crude oil, and that oil has been enhanced with other components that scientists have carefully selected.

Synthetic oil first came about in 1929. It's been very useful for the military, having been used in jets and other vehicles. In the 1970s, when we were dealing with energy problems, the industry worked to figure out how artificial oils could improve vehicles' fuel economies. These days, synthetic oils are found in many of our vehicles, including several at Ruxer Truck Center.

Compared to conventional motor oil, synthetic oil is more stable and lasts longer. It's harder to break down and less likely to oxidize, and that's why it can provide better engine protection as you drive around Jasper.
