Should I Get Fully Synthetic Oil?

How do you know which type is best suited for your vehicle with multiple engine oils to choose from? Fortunately, the process of finding a good match doesn't have to be overwhelming, and it is relatively easy. First and foremost, you should always check your manufacturer's recommendations (listed in your owner's manual). When making this decision, you should also consider driving habits, vehicle style, and environmental factors (climate). Here's a deeper look at the different types of oil you can get for your vehicle!

Full Synthetic Oil

Synthetic oil has many attractive attributes. For instance, it has a higher viscosity, which can withstand sludge buildup, hot temperatures, and corrosion. Synthetic oil is also more consistent in formulation, which minimizes the friction inside the engine and increases overall efficiency. If you own a high-performance vehicle, synthetic oil is the preferable option. The only setback of synthetic motor oil is its higher price tag. However, it is justifiable as you don't have to get oil changes as frequently.

Conventional Oil

Conventional oil is best suited for light-duty, older-model vehicles with simplistic engines. In summary, if you don't drive regularly or have an older car, conventional oil might make the most sense.

Synthetic Blend Oil

Synthetic blend oil is a perfect balance between conventional and full synthetic oil. It is a middle ground, and it attracts individuals who want to make the switch but want to save money. Blends have some of the benefits of full synthetics at a lower price point. 


If your budget permits, most auto experts will recommend using full synthetic motor oil. It is excellent at boosting engine performance and lifespan while letting you get away with less frequent services. If you can't handle the extra cost, you can also try a blend. Changing oil types shouldn't harm your engine, and you might even save some dough in the long run. If you require an oil service soon, we welcome you to Lexbrodies Honolulu.

This was my first visit with Lex Brodie Kaneohe branch and I’m sold as a forever customer. The manger Gerard and his staff treated me like Ohana. I highly recommend Lex Brodie Kaneohe branch if anyone needs tire and/or brake service. They are the best. Mahalo🤙🏽🙏🏽

Yelp: Jack and the girls at the front took really good care of me and my mom. They are professional and probably one of the most honest mechanic shops I have been to. You can tell they really want to make their customers happy and give them the most fair price they can. Jack and the sales girl I talked to broke down all the costs before starting the work so I knew exactly what we were paying for. Great staff, patient, kind, and honest. This place treats you like family and wants you to leave happy.

Wonderful, quick service. My low tire pressure light came on while driving to work downtown. I was able to make an appointment to drop off my car at lunch and picked it up after work. No charge for checking my tires and the employees were extremely friendly and efficient even though they were busy.

Have been going to Lex Brodie's for tire and alignment work for over 40 years and they have been outstanding. Sure, I've experienced a few "quirks" with them, but that also happens with any other best other shops taking care of them in good order.

I always receive great service from this location. Today I had Jack and he was awesome. He explained the services and pricing. Extremely helpful. The woman who cashed me out (ugh I wish I got her name) was so kind and courteous, too! 5-stars all around! Mahalo!
