How Often Should Synthetic Oil Be Changed?

Synthetic oil changes are recommended every 7,500 to 15,000 miles, depending on the car and suggested oil. Refer to your owner’s manual for guidance on how often to change your oil. If it’s time to schedule a synthetic oil change, book a service appointment at Auto Express near West Lafayette.

What’s the Difference Between Synthetic Oil and Conventional Oil?

While it’s true that synthetic oil is more expensive, it’s more refined than conventional oil. As a result, synthetic oil delivers better performance and longevity. This is why synthetic oil is ideal for high-performance cars. Again, check your owner’s manual to determine what grade of oil is best for your vehicle.

Can You Mix Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

You can blend the two oil types if you’re changing your car’s oil at home, but it’s not recommended if your car requires synthetic. They can be mixed in a pinch, but the disadvantages outweigh the benefits. If your owner’s manual calls for synthetic oil, that’s what you’ll want to stick to. You’ll dilute the benefits of the synthetic if you blend it with conventional. 

What are the Benefits of Synthetic Oil?

  • Longer Oil Change Interval: A lot of vehicles that require synthetic oil can last as long as 15,000 miles between an oil change. How often to change synthetic oil depends on what’s listed in the owner’s manual, though. 
  • Better Performance at Higher Temps: When subjected to the heat of an engine, synthetic oil doesn’t become as viscous as conventional oil. This allows it to last longer in comparison. 
  • Better for Performance Overall: Synthetic oil stays cleaner for longer periods of time, which again, makes it a great choice for performance cars or vehicles designed for off-roading.
