Peak Auto Applies Oil window Stickers to every oil change
Despite modern vehicles keeping track of oil change intervals, it is not enough.

Does it matter what type of oil I am using? Yes, indeed it does. You should only use the correct oil in your vehicle. This word correct gets more and more complicated year after year. In the old days, there was just oil, and oil weights, 5w30 or 10w40... Not anymore. Now we have conventional oil, synthetic oil, and synthetic blended oil. The blended oil trend was short lived. Manufacturers though they were getting the best of both worlds between synthetic and conventional oil at a fraction of the price of full synthetic oils. This was not the case, we were all getting the worst of both world, leaking gaskets and shortness of life. There was never a standard established as to what constituted a synthetic blend therefore you could add a tablespoon of synthetic oil to a barrel of the cheapest conventional oil you could by and call it "synthetic blend". Oh yeah, companies did do this.

At Peak Aut located next to the Cary Auto Mall at 833 US 64 West in Apex NC we use only the correct oil for your oil change, synthetic or conventional. Every manufacturer has quality standards that they require for engine oil used. The standards are noted on the oil bottle as approvals. As an example BMW has an approval requirement of Long Life 2 for gasoline engines and Long Life 4 for Diesel engines. One had ash and the other does not...
Even with the best Twin Power Turbo Oil made by Pennzoil as Euro Synthetic, oil cannot last 15,000 miles between changes. In fact you can barely drive your BMW 2,000 miles without adding a liter of engine oil. At Peak Auto we believe that 6,000 miles between full synthetic oil changes will help your vehicle get the best fuel economy possible, keep the engine running as best possible, and cut down your repair costs n the long run.
