Know Your Oils

Conventional Oil V.S. Synthetic Oil
    You have most likely been asked whether you have used conventional oil or synthetic oil. Majority of people know that synthetic is the best choice but don't know exactly why. Here we will describe the small characteristics these two oil actually have in common. 

    Traditionally inexpensive, used for most standard vehicles, and good for year-round, mild climates. Newer makes and models can get by with conventional oil changes once every 3-4,000 miles.

    Synthetic oil changes deliver the greatest benefits for most vehicles. They last longer, can help with your engine's life, and can eventually provide a greater return despite the initial cost. Synthetic oil has excellent benefits, such as being not susceptible to freezing, not breaking down on higher temperatures, and lasting longer between oil changes.

Nissan Ester Synthetic Oil

Synthetic oil is not only refined but also distilled, purified and broken down into its basic molecules. This process not only removes more impurities from the crude oil but also enables individual molecules in the oil to be tailored to the demands of modern engines. These customized molecules provide higher levels of protection and performance than conventional oils. But the synthetic base oil is only half the story. The correct blend additives must go into the mix to create the oil.

Nissan Ester Oil has a unique, balanced formulation to keep your engine running like new. So what are the benefits of Ester synthetic oil? Synthetics typically outperform conventional motor oils in providing more protection for your vehicle. Here's how all that chemistry translates to the real world
.Synthetic motor oil keeping your engine clean

Keep your engine cleaner 
As oil circulates through your engine it can pick up deposits. Over time, conventional oils can sometimes form sludge, which can reduce your engine's efficiency and, ultimately, reduce the life of your engine. Ester motor oils contain fewer impurities compared to conventional motor oils and can better resist the formation of sludge thereby preventing deposits from forming in your engine.

Synthetic motor oil for engine wear protection

Offer greater engine wear protection
Engine parts are in constant contact with each other. They're also moving at high speeds. In the extreme environment of your engine, components can wear and break down. Your motor oil is the protective barrier between these components. As conventional oils break down, their ability to prevent engine wear diminishes. Ester motor oils, on the other hand, retain their wear protection properties for a much longer time, increasing engine life.

Flow better in low temperatures 
When your car sits for awhile (let's say overnight) the oil settles. But, when you fire up the ignition, it begins flowing through critical engine parts to protect against friction. With conventional oils, it takes more time until they are able to flow smoothly through the engine. During the cold winter months, or if you live in an extremely cold environment, this flow process takes even longer. Ester motor oils, however, are engineered to flow quickly even at low temperatures, and they start protecting your engine right after you start your car.

Protect better at high temperatures
When running, engines are hot. Really, really hot. Over time, the high temperatures in your engine can cause conventional motor oils to break down or evaporate exposing your engine to wear. Ester motor oils are engineered to resist these high temperatures, which is especially important if you're driving in hot climates.
