Synthetic Oil Offers Better Protection and Less Contamination

Cars and other vehicles are a constant culprit of air pollution and other environmental problems, but this day an age sacrificing your car for the environment is not an option for most of us. We depend on our vehicles for commuting and reaching our frequent destinations, and therefore, need to keep them in the best working conditions. However, this does not mean that we can´t make environmentally friendly decisions when it comes to our car maintenance. That is why today at Hartmans Inc, we want to talk about how synthetic oil can better protect your engine while remaining a more ecological option than conventional motor oil.

The Main Difference Between Conventional and Synthetic Oil

Where your motor oil comes from and what it is made of makes the most significant difference. Regular motor oil is derived from the crude petroleum that is extracted from the ground by massive drilling. It then gets refined and slightly modified to be used in your engine. Synthetic oil is created under more controlled conditions and with less natural substances. The molecules that go into synthetic oil are man-made through the combination and alteration of hydrocarbon molecules into a new type of molecule called polyalphaolefin. The more synthetic process creates a strong and incredibly valuable form of lubrication that provides many benefits and additional protection. For the highest level lubrication and complete care always choose Amsoil full synthetic oil. Visit our online Amsoil store or contact us directly and start experiencing greater savings, better engine protection, and enhanced performance in your vehicle.

Reduced the Amount of Oil Changes With Synthetic Oil and Decrease the Oil Waste Produced

How long motor oil lasts before needing to be changed is one of the most determinant factors in regards to how earth-friendly or not it is as this also determines the amount of waste produced. The less chemically altered composition of conventional oil also makes it vulnerable to any extreme temperatures or harsh conditions which lead to it being burned out faster and requires more frequent oil changes. Conventional oil wears out so quickly that in a year around 3-4 oil changes will be needed. This means that if a vehicle disposes around a gallon of oil in every oil change, there are about 4 gallons of conventional oil being disposed of every year for one car, and there are around 2.5 million cars in the United States. However, cars that use a synthetic oil can reduce that by more than half. Synthetic oil can last up to about 5 times longer than conventional oil. For example, with Amsoil Signature Series full synthetic oil your vehicle can go up to 25,000 miles before needing an oil change. That means around one oil change every year and a half and you are saving yourself and the planet about 3 gallons of oil a year. Do your part in helping to reduce the oil waste by using synthetic oil.

Dispose of All Types of Motor Oil in the Appropriate Manner

Motor oil regardless of the type is still oil and this means that it has the potential to pollute our environment if discarded in the wrong places. Never throw out your used oil down the drain or toilet or any other place like that. Motor oil needs to be disposed of correctly and in some cases it can even be recycled and refiltered in order to be used again. Doing this is truly the best way to help our planet. If you plan on doing your own oil changes do your research and find a hazardous waste (HHW) facility near you for safe and adequate disposal of the oil. It would even be wise to start looking for a nearby motor oil recycling center that will help you recycle it into reusable oil, this is one of the best environmental friendly choices you can make for your engine.
