synthetic vs conventional oil
We are often asked — what is the best oil to us?
That’s kind of like asking what’s the best flavor of ice cream. You ask 10 different people and you’d probably get 10 different answers. (For the record, our personal favorite is mint chocolate chip.)
With motor oil, 10 different cars may each have a different oil that is “best”. Determining the best oil for a particular car needs to take into account several factors, such as what type of car it is, how old it is, environmental factors, driving conditions and performance expectations — to name a few.
We’ve found that people are more-or-less comfortable with conventional oils but can be easily overwhelmed when it comes to synthetics. For those considering a switch to synthetic oil or just curious about it, we found this article on the Machinery Lubrication web site that we thought served as a good introduction into synthetic oils.
At IntelliStick it’s not our aim to tell you what oil to use. We want to give you the tools to figure out what oil is best for your purposes. For some of you that will be a synthetic, but they are definitely not for everyone.
