If the owner’s manual says you do, then yes, your car needs synthetic oil.

But what if it doesn’t? If your car is a high performance car, it is very likely you will still need synthetic oils – that includes supercharged and turbo charged engines.


But what if it doesn’t?


If your car is a high performance car, it is very likely you will still need synthetic oils – that includes supercharged and turbo charged engines.


So we use it in high performance cars, how about the average everyday car?

Older engines in older cars also stand to benefit from synthetic oil formulations. The reason – lesser sludge is formed in the engine with synthetic formulas.

So it sounds like there’s no downside to just using synthetic oils?

Quite true, synthetic oils took many years of research to get it to the point where it outperformed conventional oils. They have better resistance against high temperatures, stable viscosity, rarely causes harmful substances to be formed in your engine, and have good film strength.



"It offers more horsepower and better petrol economy."



All that means: your car will be able to operate in a larger range of temperatures; depending on the kind of synthetic oil, you’ll gain different kinds of enhanced performances; smoother and cooler engine operations, which offers more horsepower and better petrol economy.


So why do some people stick with conventional oils?

Because of the hefty price tag attached to synthetic oils. Synthetics can cause twice as much as mineral oils.



"Synthetic oils cost the same as mineral oils plus benefits"



That being said – the increase in price is offset by oil change intervals.

Synthetic oils require to be changed every 10,000km instead of mineral oil’s 5,000km.

Ringgit per km, synthetic oils cost the same as mineral oils plus they offer all the benefits mentioned above.



So does your car need synthetic oil? Not necessarily, but we highly recommend it.
