When you visit Patriot Auto Group, you aren’t just going to get a run-of-the-mill oil change. We will educate you on all of your oil options as well as perform an inspection of your vehicle to see if there are any underlying issues.

The type of oil you use can greatly affect how often you’ll need to get an oil change, so make sure you pick the right type.

Your Guide to Oil Types

Depending on what kind of engine you have, there are different types of oil that you can get. When you stop by Patriot Auto Group, we will let you know what your vehicle can take.

The most basic type of oil you can use is also the cheapest option, but not necessarily the best. You will have to come in for an oil change every 2,000 to 3,000 miles, depending on how much you drive. Also, this oil won’t do much to help the functionality of your engine.  

Our top recommendation is a type of oil that is as synthetic as possible. Synthetic oil is great because there are fewer additives in it, so it burns much more efficiently than standard oil and keeps your engine clean.

Some synthetic oil blends can last up to 6,000 miles before your next oil change. If your engine can take a full synthetic oil blend, then you can even wait up to 15,000 miles, depending on the make and model of your vehicle.
