How Often To Change Synthetic Oil

Oil Change

How often do you change synthetic oil in your car? It is a question we hear from many drivers in the Lawrence and Trenton areas. In most cases, synthetic oil lasts between 7,500 miles and 15,000 miles, but its lifespan can vary based on the vehicle and oil used. We recommend checking your owner’s manual to learn more about the interval recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. When your vehicle is in need of an oil change, Beaverton drivers can rely on the team at Princeton BMW. 

Comparing Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil

While synthetic oil may be the more costly option for Hamilton drivers, that is due to the fact that it is more refined. Not only does this cause synthetic oil to last longer, it also leads to better performance. This is why you may have noticed that synthetic oil is generally recommended for high-performance cars. Are you wondering which type of motor oil is best for your BMW? Once again, we recommend following the requirements outlined in your owner’s manual. It is always best to follow manufacturer recommendations. 

Benefits of Synthetic Oil

What are the perks of using synthetic oil? 

  • Longer Oil Change Interval – While synthetic oil may not be as affordable as conventional oil initially, it does last longer. This could end up saving you money in the long run. 
  • Better at Higher Temperatures – Synthetic oil doesn’t become as viscous from high engine temperatures.
  • Better for Performance – Synthetic oil can stay cleaner for longer, which can be beneficial if you do a lot of off-roading or racing around Philadelphia, PA. 

Can You Mix Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

While it can be ok to use a mixture of synthetic and conventional oil, it is generally not recommended. Although it may slightly lower the cost, it also lowers the benefits and performance advantages of synthetic oil. If your car requires synthetic, it is best to always use synthetic oil. 

How Much is a Full Synthetic Oil Change?

Your vehicle and the grade of oil used will affect the cost of a synthetic oil change. Feel free to get in touch with our service department for up-to-date pricing info. We can provide you with a quote in no time. Remember to also take a look at our rotating service specials for added savings.
