The difference between synthetic oil and mineral oil

Difference 1: synthetic oil, less impurities

The synthetic oil is produced by chemical synthesis using resources such as light oil ethylene gas. Compared with mineral oil, the synthetic oil contains almost no impurities and has superior properties including viscosity and heat resistance. Synthetic oils offer excellent performance and quality in chemical synthesis for applications requiring maximum performance

Difference 2: Excellent lubricity and reduced fuel consumption

Synthetic oil is more uniform than mineral oil, and the energy loss from the friction inside the fluid is reduced, so the lubricity is excellent, which is related to energy efficiency and fuel consumption reduction.
