What is the Difference Between Synthetic Oil vs Conventional Oil? 

When it comes to the inevitable oil change drivers have to make on their vehicles, many people might not know what kind of motor oil is best for their vehicle. With so many different options to choose from, many people struggle between purchasing and using synthetic oil or conventional oil. So exactly what is the difference between synthetic oil vs conventional oil?

Many new cars also require drivers to use synthetic oils, but they are often more expensive than conventional oil.
