High-Mileage Motor Oil Explained
High-mileage motor oil is tailor-made for engines accumulating higher miles with internal component depreciation. The special high-mileage motor oil formula includes enhanced conditioners, antioxidants, seal swells, detergents, and anti-friction modifiers. The result is better lubrication that protects essential engine components and extends life.
When Should I Switch to High-Mileage Motor Oil?
We generally recommend drivers begin considering high-mileage motor oil at 75,000 to 100,000 miles. We welcome you to contact us during regular hours to discuss your vehicle’s characteristics to determine if switching to high-mileage motor oil is in your best interest. We will consider the make and model, engine type, current odometer reading, and driving conditions. These essential factors provide the details necessary for the best individual recommendation.
Extended Oil Change Consequences
Extended oil changes stand in contrast to the #1 way to get the most out of your engine - regular oil changes at the recommended mileage. Driving beyond the recommended oil change interval equals an extended oil change, allowing dirty, sludgy, broken down oil to provide poor lubrication. The engine’s moving parts work harder and hotter with more friction. Inadequate lubrication causes premature depreciation, threatens reliability, and shortens engine life. Preventing these consequences is easy by getting oil changes when recommended.
