So you are rolling into a quick oil change garage and you are asked whether you want a premium oil change or not. This likely doesn't have anything to do with the filter, but instead the type of oil used. Now, when considering oil changes, you need to determine if high-quality oil will be beneficial for your vehicle and if it is worth you spending money on it. As simple as it sounds, before making a decision about the type of oil change, you need to know a bit about your actual vehicle.

Synthetic Oil

A premium oil change usually means the shop will use a synthetic oil. This works great with newer vehicles. However, if you are driving an older vehicle manufactured prior to the year 2000, chances are the synthetic nature won't really do anything all that great for your car. There's nothing wrong with using a synthetic, but it generally has additives designed to improve newer engines. So, if you roll up in your old '95 truck, ask your trusted auto mechanic what is the best type of oil to use for that motor.

High Mileage Oils

The next thing to consider when choosing the type of oil change is a vehicle with high mileage. There are oils designed specifically for high-mileage engines. This is actually something you should seriously consider once the engine pushes over 75,000 miles. High-mileage oil contains additional sealants which help prevent breakdown of oil components within the engine block.
