Semi-synthetic oil is for cars that are more modern. They are used on vehicles with more complex engines. They are a blend of regular and synthetic oil. They offer many benefits at a lower cost than full synthetic. This oil reduces friction in the engine, withstands temperature changes well, increases fuel economy and does not have to be changed as often. It is recommended to change it every 5,000 or 6,000 miles. It is a good oil for vehicles used for towing carrying loads regularly. This oil can be used for most vehicles.
Synthetic oil is more expensive and often used in sports cars, SUVs and trucks that are rated on performance or used for carrying cargo.
