When you take your sedan, SUV, or truck to a service center to get an oil change, you're likely going to be hit with this question: conventional or synthetic? If you're one of the drivers who gets absolutely perplexed by this question, you're not alone. Let's take a look at the differences between conventional and synthetic oil.

Drivers of more modern cars can often turn to synthetic oil for improved performance and longer time and distance between oil changes. Synthetic oil also flows better than conventional oil in colder temperatures and protects your engine better in hotter temperatures. However, synthetic oil can be more on the expensive side.

If you're driving on a budget, it may be better for you to get conventional oil in your car rather than synthetic. Though synthetic oil provides many benefits that conventional oil does not, conventional oil can be more cost-effective in the moment.
