What’s the Difference Between Synthetic and Conventional Oil?
Conventional oil is created from naturally occurring, refined crude oil. Synthetic oil is a lubricant created from a combination of natural and manufactured chemicals and is specifically engineered to last longer and hold up better under a larger range of extreme operating temperatures.
What Type of Oil Belongs in my Volkswagen?
Many new vehicles require synthetic oil. It’s simply better for your engine. If you have an older model then it might still be ok with conventional oil. The type of oil necessary for your Volkswagen can be found in your owner’s manual.
How Often Should You Change the Engine Oil in Your Volkswagen?
Oil changes are one of the most important regular maintenance requirements of your Volkswagen. As you enjoy your daily drive, the engine oil is working to absorb high amounts of heat and keep the many metal parts in your engine lubricated. Over time, this oil breaks down and must be replaced to do its job well. It’s generally suggested that you have it done every 5,000 miles. However, it’s best to check with your certified VW technician to see what the best intervals are for your specific vehicle, as oil changes are something you definitely don’t ever want to wait too long to have done, and specific intervals could vary.
