Which is Better for my Mercedes-Benz: Synthetic or Conventional Oil?

Taking your Mercedes-Benz vehicle in for routine oil changes is the best way to prevent dirt and sludge from building up in your vehicle’s engine and keep it running smoothly for the duration of its lifetime. Here at Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale, we recommend synthetic oil blends instead of conventional oil for a few reasons. Take a look at the differences below!

Why is Synthetic Oil Better for my Vehicle?

Synthetic oil is created from conventional mineral oil, only more refined and with man-made chemicals that help to keep your engine clean and build-up free. Mercedes-Benz owners choose synthetic oil because it lasts longer than standard motor oil. This is due to the fact that it takes longer to break down, so you can drive your car longer between oil changes. Specialized synthetic oil can also help increase your Mercedes-Benz’s fuel mileage, help with performance, clean out your engine, and reduce engine wear during cold weather.

If you are interested in learning about which synthetic oils are approved for your Mercedes-Benz model, check the maintenance section of your owner’s manual or give our service center a call. For most Mercedes models, you’ll want to get an oil change every 7,500-10,000 miles.
