Is it worth using synthetic oil instead of mineral oil?
The origin of the base oil is not indicative of lubricant quality The quality of the compounds is determined by laboratory and engine tests that the lubricant must undergo during the design phase. Depending on the segment we find ourselves in (motorcycle, passenger vehicle, heavy-duty vehicle, industry, etc.), the application (engine, transmissions, etc.), and the performance, the origin of the lubricant will be either mineral or synthetic. Is is true that mineral base oils have a lower viscosity index (thermal degradation), are more unsaturated (oxidation and deposits), and have more sulfur (emissions) that synthetic base oils.
