Get Superior Engine Protection, Without the Steep Price
Synthetic blend motor oil is like neapolitan ice cream. It's not just chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla: it's all three flavors in one! What is synthetic blend motor oil? Synthetic blend motor oil combines the best characteristics of conventional and full synthetic oil. Also referred to as part-synthetic or semi-synthetic, synthetic blend oil is a good choice for drivers who want many of the same benefits of full synthetic, but at a fraction of the cost.
Synthetic Blend Oil vs Fully Synthetic
What is the difference between synthetic blend oil vs fully synthetic oil? Synthetic blends are a mixture of both synthetic and conventional base oils, plus some additives. While chemically different, synthetic blend oil shares many characteristics of a full synthetic. Full synthetics contain less impurities than synthetic blends, but blends still offer exceptional resistance to oxidation and maintain their performance in extreme temperatures.
Synthetic blends are also a good choice for drivers who put heavy strain on their engines and engage in activities like towing, hauling, or off-roading. Synthetic blend oil is becoming increasingly popular among drivers who want superior engine protection, but not at a steep price. Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location to talk with a technician about whether a synthetic blend oil change is right for your car or truck.
