Diesel VS Gas Engine Oil Change

How Often Should You Change Diesel Oil?

While many would suggest getting your diesel oil changed every 6 months, 400 work hours, or 5,000-7,000 miles, the recommended service interval of your diesel engine depends on how you drive. Read on to learn more. 

For all other gas-powered cars, it's generally accepted that oil changes should occur more or less every 3,000 miles. However, it's typical and usually safe for a diesel engine to surpass that recommended mileage. 

Essentially, how often your diesel engine's oil should happen depends on your driving habits, such as:

  • The type of terrain that you drive on and how often
  • The climate you're driving in
  • How much your diesel engine tows and how frequently
  • It's important to note as well that higher speeds and hotter temperatures decrease diesel oil residue buildup. When you regularly aren't reaching a high MPH, the oil will need to be changed more frequently than if you were constantly driving on the highway. 

How Much does a Diesel Oil Change Cost?

The cost of a diesel oil change varies. Generally speaking, a diesel oil change can be more expensive than a standard oil change as diesel fuel and oil cost more than petroleum. Rest assured that our Dellen Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Dealership technicians will service your vehicle for an oil change at the same time that they'll perform several other routine maintenance checks.
