Every combustion-powered automobile needs regular care and maintenance to reach its expected performance lifetime and operate up to the manufacturer’s standard. Arguably, the most important part of your car’s regular maintenance schedule is oil changes. But, just like everything else in the automotive world, oil changes have been the subject of technological advances that allow for superior preference, improved durability, and reliability. One important advance in the realm of oil changes is the advent of synthetic oil.
Many automobile owners are aware of synthetic oil and its benefits but have been told that their vehicle will only accept conventional oil changes. This may or may not be the case.
Synthetic oil was developed sometime after the end of World War II. Its original purpose was to lubricate engine parts in early jet engines. For this reason, synthetic oil had to be stronger and longer-lasting than conventional oil. It wasn’t until around the middle 1970s when automotive experts discovered that synthetic oil could also provide valuable benefits for automotive systems.
Volkswagen was one of the first automotive manufacturers to discover the benefits of using synthetic oil in their vehicles. As a result, the VW brand has earned a reputation for reliability and ease of maintenance because they design vehicles with synthetic oil changes in mind.
