Many newer cars require synthetic or synthetic-blend oil in order to minimize friction and maximize fuel economy. According to AAA, “the proper oil for your make and model of vehicle must have the correct SAE viscosity grade, meet performance standards set by the API, ILSAC and/or ACEA, and comply with any unique specifications established by the automaker or engine manufacturer”. You can find this information in your car’s owner’s manual or check out a local auto repair shop.
How often you should get an oil change depends on your vehicle’s age, type of oil used, and driving conditions. Older cars tend to change the oil every 3,000 miles. Newer cars are able to get an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. If your car’s engine requires synthetic oil, it may even last as much as 15,000 miles between services! Be sure to follow the factory maintenance schedule for oil changes.
