Admittedly, a synthetic oil change will cost slightly more and the cost could add up quickly for a fleet of trucks. Expect to pay an additional $25-$32 on average for a synthetic oil change. Nevertheless, considering its benefits, synthetic oil will pay for itself in terms of better engine efficiency, greater longevity for engine parts, and lower engine repair costs.
Before switching to synthetic oil, find out what your engine manufacturer recommends. If you usually change your vehicles’ engine oil often, regular oil could still get the job done. Consider synthetic oil if you want to minimize oil change visits to your mechanic. Due to its properties, you do not need to change synthetic oil as often as you would regular oil, to ensure optimal engine performance.
Oil is the lifeline of an engine. Using poor-quality oil for your fleet can drastically minimize the engine efficiency, create unnecessary downtime, and impact your bottom line. If you decide to switch to synthetic oil, be sure to have a professional truck mechanic perform the oil change for you.
