How Often to Change Synthetic Oil?
How often do you change synthetic oil in your car? Most synthetic oils last from between 7,500 to 15,000 miles, depending on which brand you choose and what vehicle you drive. Since there is room for variation, we ultimately recommend that you consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual for specifics about synthetic oil change intervals and service schedules. If you find you’re up for a synthetic oil change, check out our Land Rover service specials, and then schedule an appointment at Land Rover Princeton’s auto repair center.
Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil: What’s the Difference?
Now that you have a better idea of how often to change synthetic oil in your car, it’s important to understand just what exactly synthetic oil is. While more expensive, synthetic oil is also more refined, lasts longer, leads to better performance, and better fuel efficiency. It’s typically recommended for performance cars and high-end luxury vehicles, but to determine whether or not your vehicle can take synthetic oil, we recommend you check your owner’s manual.
Why Choose Synthetic Oil?
While the costs are higher, here are the main reasons Hopewell drivers should opt for synthetic oil if they can:
- Longer Oil Change Interval – How often do you change synthetic oil? From anywhere between 7,000 miles and 15,000 miles, which is much longer than your regular oil interval of 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
- Better at Higher Temperatures – Synthetic oil doesn’t become as viscous when subjected to the high heat of an engine. This allows it to last longer than conventional oil.
- Better for Performance – Because synthetic oil stays cleaner longer, it’s recommended for performance vehicles, and because it’s less hard on your engine, it also increases fuel efficiency.
