Oil naturally thickens at lower temperatures and thins at higher, thus, the thinner the viscosity the better. since the properties of honda's synthetic engine oil are thin, it has a low viscosity, allowing the oil to flow faster and circulate more freely then petroleum based engine oils.
better low- and high-temperature viscosity performance at service temperature extremes. resistance to oxidation, thermal breakdown, and oil sludge problems. possibility to extended drain intervals, with the environmental benefit of less used oil waste generated.
synthetic oils generally provide less friction and are more stable, frequently lasting longer than a non-synthetic oil. mineral motor oil, on the other hand, is a lubricant that is developed directly from crude oil. ... other oils are designed explicitly for high-performance engines and some to increase fuel efficiency.
