WHY IS SYNTHETIC OIL DIFFERENT?
The advanced technology in today’s engines require a lubricant designed specifically for improved engine performance, fuel efficiency, and reduced engine deposit to operate at their optimum capacity. Many new Toyota’s are now certified to run on a new zero weight synthetic lubrication standard: SAE 0W-20. This oil has a low-viscosity and is formulated to provide uniform lubrication and reduce friction throughout the engine. It is lighter than conventional engine oil and evenly and uniformly bathes your engine’s moving parts which means less wear and tear, better thermal stability, and increased engine efficiency. All of that combined means your engine will be better protected, operate better in extreme weather conditions and need oil changes less frequently.
Just looking at the price comparison synthetic oil changes are more expensive than regular oil changes. So you might ask what makes them better? First, regular oil changes are typically recommend in 5,000 mile intervals, so during your first 20,000 miles of driving you would need to have your vehicle serviced 4 times. At an average of $30 per service you are spending $120 in oil changes. Synthetic oil changes are recommend every 10,000 miles and average around $55. So during that same time period your oil change service would cost $110, saving you $10! And, the best part is the savings only continue after that!
By increasing the efficiency of your engine’s oil flow and reducing friction, our Genuine OW-20 oil can deliver a surprising boost in fuel efficiency. Synthetic oil can help improve fuel economy by as much as half a mile per gallon of gas, which really adds up! Over time, using synthetic oil in your Toyota will help improve its performance and help to avoid expensive repairs.
