What is Synthetic Oil

Synthetic oil actually begins as conventional oil and is then modified to improve its protective and lubricant properties. It has fewer impurities and contains additional additives to improve overall performance.

Difference Between Synthetic Oil and Conventional Oil

Synthetic oil is more resistant to extreme temperatures than conventional oil, not to mention more effective at reducing dirt and grime deposits. In addition, synthetic oil is far more successful at lubricating various engine components.

Benefits of Synthetic Oil

Overall, synthetic oil is better for your vehicle. You can expect superior performance and improved fuel economy for your Toyota car, truck, or SUV by half a mile per gallon of gasoline. Additional benefits include:

  • Better stability
  • Less frequent oil changes
  • Lower cost of ownership

Oil Change Intervals

As a general rule of thumb, auto technicians recommend getting a genuine Toyota oil change and oil filter every six months, or every 5,000 miles, whichever comes first.
