Is Synthetic Oil Right for Your Diesel?

There are many advantages to using synthetic engine oil in your diesel engine. Synthetics have a much better flow rate in cold weather than conventional engine oils, allowing critical moving parts to be better lubricated on start up. Synthetic oils also lose less viscosity at high temperatures, providing critical lubrication under high engine loads. They are less prone to coking, and have superior additive stability allowing a longer service life, meaning that under most operating conditions the oil change interval can be significantly extended.

What is the right oil for your diesel

On engines utilizing HEUI injectors, such as most Powerstroke engines, the engine oil is subjected to more stress than usual, as it is used as a pressure medium to operate the injectors, so synthetic oil offers even more advantages. It is more resistant to oxidization, thermal breakdown, and sludging. With new production techniques and the advantage of mass production the price difference between conventional and synthetic oil has decreased a great deal over the last decade, making it an even more attractive proposition.
