At Tim’s Truck Capital, our service experts get this question a lot: “Which oil should I use for my truck?” It’s a good question, especially since now you can choose synthetic oil, traditional motor oil or a blend. We thought we’d share some insights and information with you so you can make an informed decision.
Synthetic oil is great when it comes to both form and function. It lasts longer and can handle extreme temperatures much better than conventional oil. Because it can last up to three times longer than conventional oil, it’s less harmful to the environment because you’re dumping 15-24 quarts of oil less each year. Synthetic oil is more expensive, but because you have to change the oil less, it averages out with conventional oil.
With conventional oil, you have to do an oil change every 3,000 miles or three months. With today’s synthetics, you can go up to 10,000-15,000 miles or six months! Synthetics run cleaner and produce less resistance in your engine. You’ll get added horsepower and overall engine efficiency.
Most vehicle manufacturers will recommend which type of oil to use. You’ll find this information in your owner’s manual. At Tim’s Truck Capital in Epsom NH, our service experts can also provide a recommendation for you. Yes, we have the best used cars for sale in NH and used trucks NH, too—but we also offer exceptional service so your truck or vehicle will run great for as long as you own it.
