Q: Synthetic or semi sythetic or conventional

asked by on

Hello,

I need to get my oil change. I used to put synthetic in my car but according to own manual conventional is recommeded. I read over a couple of forums that it doesn't matter what oil you put synthetic or normal in the car just get your oil change on a regular interval. Is it ok i go for semi synthetic .

Thanks
