There are a lot of myths going around about synthetic oil. We hear things like if you change from using conventional oil to synthetic your car will reject it like a bad organ transplant. We also hear that you cannot mix the two together or they will cause your engine to seize up or worse.
The truth is, you can use them interchangably or even together! Though, of course, we don’t recommend that and we recommend you stick to one type of oil per oil change. That being said, if you can afford the slight increase in price for synthetic oil, go for it.
Even if your car is a 2000 Mercury Cougar that has had conventional oil its whole life, you can change over to synthetic oil worry free. It does a better job and lasts longer. Period.
