Can I switch between Synthetics and Conventional products?

In regards to engine oils the answer is always yes.  We have never seen any harmful effects of changing an engine oil between synthetic and convetional prodcuts.  However, there are some industrial products that utilize ester’s, diester’s, POE’s and PAO’s.  Always check your equipment manual and oil data sheets to insure compatability, especially if you are only topping off.

How much synthetic is in a synthetic blend?

Brands typically keep the blend ratios proprietary. Moreover it is impossible to check the base oil makeup of an oil. Traditionally the term synthetic blend is a marketing term, always make sure the approvals match the quality you are looking for. For many brands a synthetic blend has a Dexos approval,whereas the conventional alternative does not.

What oil should I use?

The type of oil you choose depends first on the equipment you are maintaining. We have great tools that can help make sure you are providing the best protection possible. Often we have multiple products that are compatible, and we can help you select the brand that best meeets your unique needs.

How often should I change my oil?

You should always follow the manufacturers recommended intervals for your service level. There are oils that claim extended protection intervals. If this is something you are considering, a good practice is to monitor used oil analysis. We can help you understand what the analysis results mean.
