Top 5 Best Synthetic Oil Companies in 2022, Royal Purple, Mobil 1, Shell Rotella, Valvoline, Castrol

Synthetic Oil

Synthetic oil is a synthetically made lubricant consisting of many chemical compounds. Synthetic lubricants can be made using chemically modified petroleum components instead of whole crude oil, but they can also be made from other raw materials. However, the base material is still largely crude oil that is distilled and then modified physically and chemically. The actual synthesis process and composition of additives is generally a trade secret and will vary between producers.

Below I present to you the top 5 companies in the field of synthetic oils for the year 2022:
