Synthetic Oil Change Myths

  1. Synthetic Oil Myth: Once you switch to synthetic oil you can never switch back. Reality: This is one of the most persistent myths about synthetic oil and completely untrue. You can switch back and forth at any time. In fact, synthetic blends are simply a mixture of synthetic and conventional oils. It is advisable that you use the same oil for top-offs if needed, thereby giving you the best protection from the oil that you have chosen.
  2. Synthetic Oil Myth: You shouldn't use synthetic oil in an older vehicle. Reality: This myth is rooted in the idea that synthetic oil is "more slippery", lower in viscosity, or not as compatible with seals and therefore may leak more in places conventional oil might not. Again, completely untrue. Synthetic oils will enhance the engine protection in older vehicles just as they do for new engines. 
  3. Synthetic Oil Myth: You should break in your engine with conventional oil before you start using synthetic oil. Reality: Again, there's no manufacturer we're aware of that makes this recommendation. Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, RAM, Mercedes, Porsche, Corvette, Volkswagen, Hyundai, and many other manufacturers' vehicles come from the factory with synthetic oil.
  4. Synthetic Oil Myth: Using a synthetic oil voids a car's warranty. Reality: Completely false. Pennzoil synthetic oil does NOT void the warranty of your Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, or RAM and in fact Pennzoil synthetic is the recommended oil in all their vehicles.
