How Often To Change Synthetic Oil

How often do you change synthetic oil in your car? In most cases, synthetic oil can last approximately 7,500 and 15,000 miles. This varies based on the type of oil that you use as well as your particular make and model and driving habits. For more specific oil change guidelines, you will want to consult your owner’s manual. If it’s time to bring your vehicle in for a synthetic oil change, you can set up an appointment with the experts at Mile High Acura. We are conveniently located near Highlands Ranch.

Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil

Not sure whether your vehicle needs synthetic oil or conventional oil? Once again, it is a good idea to check your owner’s manual. Here you will find the manufacturer recommendations, and it is important to follow their specific guidelines.

Why Choose Synthetic Oil?

Although some Littleton drivers opt for conventional oil because it is the more affordable option, there are several reasons why synthetic oil may be worth the extra cost:

  • Longer Oil Change Interval – For some, synthetic oil can last as long as 15,000 miles between an oil change, so it can actually be quite cost-effective in the long run.
  • Better at Higher Temperatures – Synthetic oil doesn’t become as viscous when subjected to the high heat of an engine. This is why it has a longer lifespan than conventional oil.
  • Better for Performance – Because synthetic oil can stay cleaner for longer, it may be necessary if you have a high-performance car. If you plan on racing or off-roading near Aurora, synthetic oil is a smart choice.

Can You Mix Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

In a pinch, you can use a mixture of synthetic and conventional oil. It’s not recommended though. When you do this, you decrease the benefits of synthetic oil. If your car requires synthetic, you will want to use only synthetic oil.
