How Often Do You Change Synthetic Oil?

Auto Mechanic Checking Oil

 

If your Chevrolet vehicle uses synthetic oil, you have probably wondered how often you can expect to change it. Most synthetic oil can last anywhere from 7,500 to 15,000 miles, but this frequency range will vary depending on which model you have and what oil you are using. For the most accurate answer, take a look at your owner’s manual! Let’s explore deeper into one of the most commonly asked yet important questions “How often do you change your synthetic oil?” below with the service team at Casey's Frontier Chevrolet Of Livingston.

Difference Between Synthetic and Conventional Oil

You’re probably aware of synthetic and conventional oil, but what is the difference exactly, and which one should you be using on the Livingston roads? You will need to use the type of oil that is recommended by the OEM of your car, so you should consult with your owner’s manual first and foremost. 

If your owner’s manual says the model you have can use either or, you will need to consider the following key differences between these two types of oil:

  • Synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil.
  • Synthetic oil is more refined and lasts longer, sometimes up to 15,000 miles until the next oil change. However, how often you need to change your synthetic oil will still depend on your car. 
  • Synthetic oil can endure the heat in Tennessee, which is another reason why it lasts longer.
  • Synthetic oil provides better performance hence why it is usually recommended for high-performing vehicles.

When solely looking at these differences, you might think that synthetic oil is ultimately better. However, depending on your Cookeville ride, conventional oil can actually be better. Again, this is why you should always follow what your owner’s manual has to say!

Can I Use a Mixture of Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

While you can technically use a mixture of synthetic and conventional, our service technicians at Casey's Frontier Chevrolet Of Livingston along with other auto experts don’t suggest it. When you’re mixing two types of oil together, you are ultimately diluting the powerful performance that synthetic oil provides, which defeats the purpose of using synthetic oil in the first place. Use the type of oil that your car thrives best with and you can count on it every time!
