Myths Regarding Synthetic Motor Oil

Synthetic oil is just one of the types of motor oil that you can use in your vehicle. Many vehicle manufacturers recommend the use of synthetic oil, but some people are dead set against using it. Because of this, myths about synthetic oil have arisen.

Some people will tell you that once you put synthetic oil in your car that you always have to use it. That is false. You can go back to using traditional motor oil after using synthetic in a vehicle. It will cause no harm. Some also believe that synthetic oil will cause oil leaks. This is mostly false. Synthetic oil will not cause leaks in newer vehicles. If a car is over 15 years old, it might.
