How is Synthetic Oil Made?

As engines become smaller and more efficient, they have to work harder, developing higher temperatures. These extreme conditions are why many automakers now require the use of synthetic oil. Contrary to popular belief, synthetic oil is not a single product. It is actually a range of products. Some are custom-designed inorganic compounds. Others start out as naturally-occurring crude oil or natural gas, then are purified and structurally modified in order to produce improved performance under extreme conditions.

Some synthetic oils need no additives while others are further modified with the addition of advanced additives to improve performance. Either way, the end result is a product offering superior lubrication, enhanced engine protection under all operating conditions, and better heat dissipation. Synthetic oils never break down the way conventional oil does, therefore it does not need to be changed as often.
