How Often Do You Change Synthetic Oil?

A Mechanic's Hand Pulling Out an Oil Dipstick on a Car to Check Oil Level

If you own a vehicle that takes synthetic oil, you’ve probably wondered about how often to change synthetic oil in order to keep your vehicle healthy. Most synthetic oils last between 7,500 and 15,000 miles depending on the vehicle and oil used–be sure to check your owner’s manual for the recommended oil change interval for your vehicle, and to ensure you are using the correct type of oil. If you are due for your next synthetic oil change in Philadelphia, schedule a service appointment at Land Rover West Chester.



Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil

What is the difference between synthetic and conventional oil? Some vehicles require synthetic oil, and while it tends to cost more than conventional oil, it usually lasts longer and can boost performance. If your owner’s manual recommends synthetic oil be sure to follow that recommendation in order to ensure your engine is performing at optimum levels and not being damaged by conventional oil.

Below are some benefits of synthetic 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 Philadelphia.

Can You Mix Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

If your oil levels are low and you only have access to conventional oil, is it acceptable to top off your synthetic oil levels with conventional oil? While it is a temporary solution if you are stranded, it’s not recommended long-term, because you’re diluting the performance advantages of synthetic oil. If your car requires synthetic, it’s best to stick with that.
