How often do you change synthetic oil in your car? Most synthetic oils last between 7,500 and 15,000 miles depending on the vehicle and oil used. Check your owner’s manual for a specific oil change interval. If it’s time to bring your vehicle in for a synthetic oil change, schedule a service appointment at Beau Townsend Nissan near Huber Heights.

Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil

The best way to decide whether to use synthetic oil or conventional oil is to check your owner’s manual. Usually one is recommended for a particular model. It’s always best to follow the manufacturer’s advice.

Why Choose Synthetic Oil?

While some customers avoid synthetic oil because of the cost, it has a number of perks you won’t get with conventional oil:

  • Longer Oil Change Interval – Some vehicles that require synthetic oil can last as long as 15,000 miles between an oil change.
  • 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 can stay cleaner for longer, it’s often recommended in high-performance vehicles. It can be especially important for racing or off-roading near Dayton.

Can You Mix Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

In a pinch, you can use a mixture of synthetic and conventional oil, but it’s not recommended. You’re essentially diluting the performance advantages of synthetic oil. If your car requires synthetic, it’s best to stick with that.
