Synthetic oil is an oil that is created from chemical compounds. That means that this oil does not occur in nature. On the other hand, conventional oil is directly created from crude oil and is treated with chemical additives.

One of the biggest differences between synthetic oil and conventional oil is that synthetic oil will have extra lubricants in its overall formula. This is used to extend the life of the oil. Also, synthetic oil is designed to work at higher temperatures. That is why some vehicle owners will use synthetic oils on a high-performance vehicle or may choose synthetic oil if they live in a hot climate area.
