Synthetic Diesel Oil

Synthetic oil is an oil product that contains additional chemical ingredients that are not present in crude oils. These additional ingredients are synthesized or created artificially and added to petroleum as a means of meeting specific needs for lubrication.

Fully synthetic motor oils contain non-conventional, high-performance fluids and a system of additives that helps prevent wear, keeps engines clean, flows easily, maintains viscosity performance, prevents rust and reduces friction.

Using synthetic oil has many advantages associated with it. The addition of artificial ingredients also helps to ease the burden on diminishing crude oil reserves, making it possible to use natural oils much more efficiently. Using a synthetic product often minimizes the oil sludge issues in your truck especially in older vehicles. Synthetic oils also have a higher tolerance to heat and aging.

A major benefit of using synthetic oil is a more efficient performance when your trucks engine is started in cold weather. Petroleum-based motor oil thickens in cold temperatures, requiring the starter and battery to work much harder to start a cold engine. Synthetic oil is not as affected by low temperatures and begins to lubricate all the working parts much more quickly and efficiently than crude oil products would, thus lowering your chance of gumming and unnecessary wear on your trucks individual engine components.

Synthetic oil was originally developed as a way to deal with the shortage of crude oil products and is used more frequently today due to the better performance. During periods when the price of crude oil rises significantly, synthetic oils may also be a less expensive lubricant option to go with.

Advantages of Using Synthetic Oil:

  • Better low and high temperature viscosity performance
  • Improved fuel economy in most engines
  • Decreased evaporative loss
  • Better lubrication on cold starts
  • Resistance to oxidation, thermal breakdown and oil sludge problems
  • Oil changes are not needed as often because synthetic is more durable

Disadvantages of Using Synthetic Oil:

  • The cost is usually 2 to 4 times more than petroleum-based oils
  • The lower friction may make them unsuitable for break-in period
  • Potential decomposition problems in certain chemical environments
  • Potential stress cracking of plastic components like polypxymethylene (POM) in the presence of  polyalpholefins (POA’s)
  • Synthetics do not hold lead in suspension as well as mineral oil
  • Synthetic oils are not recommended in automotive rotary engines

The Facts on Rotating Your Trucks Tires

Tire rotation is an important maintenance routine that extends the life of your tires and ensures safe driving and handling of your vehicle.  Rotating your trucks tires also prevents the tires from developing pattern wear problems that result from turning in the same direction on the same wheel for thousands and thousands of miles.

Rotating your tires evens out the wear between the front and rear tires (usually front tires wear out faster), so that your tires don’t wear out prematurely. It is necessary to rotate your tires front-to-rear several times during their life cycle. This will help equalize tread wear and maximize the life of your tires.

Not all tires can be rotated from side to side and front to back. Make sure you follow the recommendations set by the manufacture of your tires. How often should you rotate your trucks tires? Well that all depends on your manufacture. Check back to your trucks owner’s manual for specific guidelines. Most manufacturers recommend rotating your tires every 5,000-10,000 miles.

When rotating your trucks tires you should also take this time to check the pressure of each tire, measure the tread and look for any unusual wear.

Is it Time for an Oil Change?

Changing your trucks oil every 2,500-3,000 miles is very crucial. Changing your oil on a routine basis will help to ensure the life of your truck for many years to come.

There are many benefits that are associated with changing your trucks oil including:

  • Increased gas mileage
  • Increased performance
  • Improved engine stability and life

Your trucks oil is packed with important protective additives that can be depleted after about 2,500-3,000 miles. Oil changes are the very best way to maintain adequate levels of protection for today’s high-performing engines, especially in sever driving conditions that include:

  • Rush Hour traffic commuting that requires frequent stops and idling
  • Dusty driving conditions
  • Heaving towing
  • High temperature operation
  • Long distance trips

Your trucks engine oil carry metals that has worn away, dirt and moisture from the air and combustion gasses that gets past the piston rings as well as sludge from chemical processes. These materials increase friction on your engines metal parts and seals and causes seals and gaskets to harden.

We see the difference in trucks daily that have been serviced regularly and those who have not.

In short changing your trucks oil and oil filter every 2,500-3,000 miles will save you a lot of money later on down the line in engine repairs.
