What are the Oil Change Intervals Using Synthetic Oil?
Most of us are familiar with conventional engine oil, but some vehicles nowadays can take synthetic options – including a few new Toyota models! Synthetic oil lacks additives and impurities, so it typically doesn’t need to be changed out quite as often as conventional oil. But just how often does it need to be done?
Does Synthetic Oil Need to Be Changed Every 3,000 miles?
Here is the good news: you do not need to do that oil as often when you use synthetic oil. The standard time interval is every 5,000 to 10,000 miles or once a year (whichever comes first). Always check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to verify the recommended time interval and type of oil that should be used.
