When it comes to engine oil, there’s no ignoring the traditional value of Conventional Oil. Conventional Oil is the staging point of all engine oils. Conventional Oil offers adequate lubrication for many Honda vehicles and is a fantastic option for many of our customers. Conventional Oil is available at a reduced price compared to other options that must undergo extensive refinement that increases the cost. Conventional Oil is an excellent lubricant but will eventually break down. Although Conventional Oil has a shorter life compared to Semi-Synthetic and Full-Synthetic options, it is available at a reduced price because of the reduced additives and detergents.
Semi-Synthetic engine oil is at the level of refinement between Conventional and Full Synthetic Oils. Semi-Synthetic outperforms conventional oil in terms of engine lubrication and life. Semi-Synthetic Blends begin with conventional oil and are refined with additional additives and detergents to improve its ability to resist sludge formation.
Full Synthetic Oil offers the best engine lubrication because it resists thermal breakdown better than Conventional and Synthetic Blends. Full Synthetic Oil begins with a base oil that is transformed using additives and a carrier that distributes the additives uniformly. The primary difference between conventional and Full Synthetic Oil is merely the level of refinement. Full Synthetic Oil is simply manufactured with specific additives that increase its performance as a lubricant within the extreme environment inside the engine. The improved performance as a lubricant provides additional value because it extends the maintenance interval. Full Synthetic is often a good idea for older-model Hondas with extensive mileage despite the initial factory recommendation for Conventional Oil because of its enormous engine-protecting benefits.
