Your Vehicle and Motor Oil: FAQ
What are the benefits of regular oil changes?
Regular oil changes will improve your gas mileage, help maintain your vehicle manufacturer’s warranty, and protect your engine and extend its service life. Not to mention, avoiding a $2,000 engine repair is never a bad thing!
Should I use conventional or synthetic oil?
Today’s full synthetic and synthetic-mineral blends are excellent for tough conditions such as stop-and-go driving, frequent trips, and towing. And for engine fills and top-offs, they are considered equivalent or superior to conventional oil. In fact, many newer car and truck models specify synthetic oil.
