How Often Do You Change Synthetic Oil?

Oil Change

If you weren’t already familiar, most high performing cars on Arlington roads, like Maserati vehicles, often require synthetic oil. But, how often do you change your synthetic oil? On average, most synthetic oils last between 7,5000 and 15,000 miles. How long synthetic oil lasts depends on what type of vehicle you have and the oil type used. For more specific information on oil change intervals, consult your owner’s manual or maintenance schedule.



Why Is Synthetic Oil Better for Some Cars?

There are two types of oil that cars operate off of: conventional oil and synthetic oil. Customers tend to avoid synthetic oil because it’s more expensive in comparison to conventional oil. Most vehicles use conventional oil, but as mentioned previously, some high performing vehicles benefit more from synthetic oil–especially those with turbocharged engines. Why is synthetic oil better? Let’s take a look:

  • Longer Lasting. Synthetic oil lasts up to 15,000 miles from the last oil change. Of course, consult your owner’s manual for more specific details.
  • More Suitable for Higher Temperatures. Unlike conventional oil, synthetic oil is not as viscous when exposed to high temperatures from the engine. Turbo-charged engines generate more power, making synthetic oil the better choice.
  • Stays Cleaner, and for Longer. Synthetic oil stays cleaner for longer, which makes it the better choice for vehicles built for performance or off-roading in Fort Worth.

Can You Mix Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

Yes, you can use a mixture of synthetic and conventional oil, but if synthetic oil is recommended for your Maserati, then it’s best to stick to a full blend. This is because conventional oil dilutes the characteristics of synthetic oil that allows for better performance on Plano roads.
