What is synthetic oil?
Synthetic oil is a lubricant consisting of chemical compounds that are artificially made (synthesized). 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 oil is used as a substitute for lubricant refined from petroleum when operating in extremes of temperature, because, in general, it provides superior mechanical and chemical properties to those found in traditional mineral oils

What is synthetic blend oil?
Part-synthetic, also called synthetic blend or semi-synthetic—oils are blends of mineral oil (conventional) and synthetic base oil.
Synthetic blend oils allow to combine a better overall performance of synthetic oils with a good ratio quality/price.

Full synthetic oil change
You can follow our guidelines given in the section How? How to do an oil change, the way to carry out an oil change is similar whatever the composition.
We just highlight 2 important issues:
- Synthetics can last as much as three times longer than conventional oil, which means that you could be saving 15 to 24 liters of oil.
- With synthetic oils, you can go up to 20,000 or 30,000 km of oil drain intervals.
