Synthetic vs. Conventional diesel oil change
An oil change is one of the most important auto services for your vehicle. It helps maximize the life of engine components and improve the fuel economy of the vehicle. We carry fully-synthetic, semi-synthetic, and conventional motor oil. Our technicians can guide you on the right type of motor oil for your vehicle and driving conditions. We recommend that you use synthetic motor oil as has it has some key advantages over conventional motor oil. It is designed to be more chemically stable, allowing it to last longer, even in more extreme temperatures. It also provides more uniform lubrication with minimal impurities.
How often do you need an oil change for the diesel engine?
Volkswagen has a recommendation for oil change service for each type of vehicle. You can check the owner’s manual of your Volkswagen for the service interval recommendation. For most types of vehicles that use conventional oil, the service interval is between 3,000 to 5,000 miles. However, you can go as far as 10,000 miles without an oil change when you use synthetic oil.
Diesel vs. Gasoline oil change service
Diesel engines require a different type of motor oil to gasoline engines. Using the wrong type of motor oil for your engine can severely damage the engine. You should check with a certified technician to make sure the right type of motor oil is being used. Diesel engine motor oil has a higher convention of additives, which can be handled by the catalytic convertor of diesel engines, but gasoline engines might not be able to do so.
