Synthetic Oil for Fort Myers Autos

Posted August 11, 2019 7:11 AM

If you are a driver in Fort Myers and you aren't currently using synthetic motor oil in your vehicle, maybe now's the time to consider it. Need more information? Well, synthetic motor oil is a substitute for petroleum based oil.

Synthetic oil doesn't gel or gum-up like petroleum based oil and it doesn't vaporize as easily. It protects better in severe driving conditions like stop and go driving around Fort Myers, as well as in very hot or very cold conditions. More and more new vehicles are being delivered with full synthetic motor oil, with the recommendation to use synthetic for the life of the vehicle.

Why is this? Synthetic motor oil maximizes engine power and fuel economy. To see why, we'd need a microscope, so we'll have to settle for using our imaginations.

The molecules of conventional motor oil are long hydrocarbon chains. Synthetic motor oil, on the other hand, has uniform, round molecules. Which is more slippery, a pile of pencils or a pile of marbles?

Synthetic motor oil lubricates better because there's less friction. That means better wear protection, cooler operating temperatures, more power and better fuel economy. And synthetic oil doesn't sludge up like conventional oil, so it prevents those small oil passages from clogging up.

Some manufacturers are extending oil change intervals. The added protection of synthetic oil covers you for these longer intervals. Talk with your service advisor about how you drive and see if he thinks you can benefit from synthetic oil. Also ask about the appropriate oil change interval for synthetic, because it may very well be longer than for conventional oil.

Most of us here in Fort Myers have a busy life and might occasionally miss an oil change; go ahead, admit it. Since we're not perfect, doesn't it make sense to use a motor oil that's got your back?

Now synthetic oil costs more. But it lasts longer, protects better and increases fuel economy. You'll likely save money in the long run. If you're serious about making your car last longer, start using synthetic motor oil right away.

Give us a call to schedule an oil change, or visit us at our Superior Auto Care website.

What People Say About Us


  • -N. M.

    I looked everywhere for an honest mechanic with affordable prices and he was recommended to me by my friends. I was very happy with the service he did on my Volvo convertible and my moms Toyota. He was quick too and since I work not too far he drove me to work and when the car was ready he picked me up. 5 star service for sure! :)

    Awesome guys that go the extra mile to take care of their customers! Dealerships will take advantage of you but these guys won't. I highly recommend them. There's no other place I take my vehicles in Lee County.


  • -James O.

    After asking around for the best, most reliable place, I was so happy that I chose Brian's Complete Automotive. They work on ANY type of vehicle, were less expensive than other shops and were very speedy in getting my SUV back to me. Honest, trustworthy mechanics are hard to come by these days. Highly recommended.

  • -Steve S.

    Called Miguel on a rear brake issue on my 2015 Ford Edge. Expecting I would have to make a appointment, he said to bring it over and he'd take a look at it. Long story short within 3 hrs I had new rear brakes and rotors and back on the road. Without a doubt, the best service at reasonable prices. I highly recommend this shop. Thanks again Miguel for your help.


  • -T L.

    Miguel is amazing and one of the best mechanics we have ever worked with. He kept us updated throughout the process with texts and pictures. He finished the work very quickly. He went above and beyond to fix things like brake lights and window issues without charge. He was pleasant and easy to work with. We have a long history of used cars/mechanics and Superior exceeded expectations. Thanks Miguel, the world needs more mechanics like you.
