How Does Synthetic Oil Help Engines?

Synthetic oil has a lower viscosity rating than conventional oil and flows more easily through engines. Conventional crude oil-based motor oil was frequently used at 10W-40 viscosity, which has been lowered to 5W-30 and even 5W-20. Synthetic oil also maintains its integrity at higher temperatures and for longer periods of time than conventional oil.

The lower viscosity of synthetic oil increases lubricating ability and can improve fuel economy by helping the engine operate with less friction.

Cars that have bad alignment are also usually suffering from bad tires as a result of the constant friction created by off-alignment tire positioning.

What You Need to Know About Horsepower

It's safe to say that everyone in the modern world has heard the term "horsepower" before. Believe it or not, horsepower didn't always have something to do with vehicles. The term horsepower predates modern cars and trucks. But what is horsepower?

More horsepower means your engine in your car produces more power, meaning it will take less time to accelerate to 60 miles per…
