How often you need an oil change starts largely depends on what type of oil your vehicle uses. There are several different types of oil but two major categories: conventional oil and synthetic oil.
Conventional oil is made from natural resources so it breaks down after about six months, or after driving about 5,000 to 7,500 miles. What brand of conventional oil you use may promise a bit more time between oil changes, but six months is a good rule of thumb for this type of oil.
Synthetic engine oil, by design, lasts quite a bit longer than conventional oil. The artificial materials from which this type of oil is made can withstand between 10,000 and 15,000 miles before it breaks down. So, you’ll be able to go about a year between oil changes.
