Should I Use Synthetic Oil?

This is an important question. If you have a new car, then, yes, you should absolutely use synthetic oil for your oil changes. Many people think that it is kind of optional and many people want to use regular oil as the cost of a synthetic oil change can be much more.

It indeed may be the case that a synthetic oil change is more expensive, but the main reason for keeping with synthetic oil is that it is what newer cars are designed for. The engineers have calculated tolerances and other engineering factors based on the use of synthetic oil. Not only will your car perform better but it will most certainly last longer if you continue to use synthetic oil.

Bring your vehicle in. Older cars on traditional oil should be serviced once every three thousand miles or so. Newer, synthetic oil-based cars can be serviced once every five thousand miles or so.
