Conventional motor oil was selected as the industry’s standard combustion engine lubricant in the post-WW2 era. It is made by refining crude petroleum and contains additives to thin viscosity and enhance thermal breakdown resistance. Conventional motor oil is the most budget-friendly option with a 3,000 to 5,000-mile change interval.
Full-synthetic motor oil is an advanced engine lubricant technology. Despite full-synthetic oil requiring petroleum-based ingredients, the significant refinement and additives render it a synthetic oil very different from petroleum. Full-synthetic motor oil costs more due to the heavy refinement, but the additional cost secures optimum lubrication and engine protection with an extended 10,000-mile change interval in normal conditions.
Semi-synthetic motor oil features a blend of conventional oil and synthetic base stock, giving it the best of both worlds. Semi-synthetic outperforms conventional and is available at a lower price than full-synthetic, making it a popular choice among Nissan owners with higher-mile engines.
Some Nissan drivers, such as those owning a Titan XD, need the extra torque for towing heavy loads. Diesel engines require special motor oil, with anti-friction modifiers catering to the enhanced engine torque. We recommend Nissan hard-working truck owners consider adopting a more frequent oil change schedule if driving in harsh conditions. Contact us for assistance in formulating the ideal oil change interval for your diesel engine.
