You may have heard of conventional and full-synthetic motor oils, but there’s also semi-synthetic oil. Semi-synthetic oil combines the best attributes of conventional and full-synthetic oil, resulting in improved performance over conventional oil, but at a lower cost than full-synthetic oil. If you have an older Honda that normally uses conventional oil, then using synthetic-blend motor oil can give your engine higher levels of performance and protection against excessive friction and heat. If your Honda uses full-synthetic oil, however, then you should stick with what the manufacturer already calls for.
To understand what makes synthetic-blend motor oil so unique, let’s compare it to conventional and full-synthetic oil. Conventional oil is refined directly from crude oil and contains a greater number of impurities that must be removed before being used as lubricant. Full-synthetic oil undergoes further refinement and processing to remove even more impurities and create an oil that performs better and lasts longer than conventional oil. Semi-synthetic oil is a blend of the two, making it more economical to use than full-synthetic while offering improved performance that’s close to what full-synthetic oil offers.
While Honda vehicles using conventional oil need theirs changed every 3,000 miles, synthetic-blend motor oil is designed to go a bit longer between oil changes. We recommend having your semi-synthetic oil changed every 5,000 miles, along with your engine oil filter. Full-synthetic motor oils can last for up to 7,500 miles or even more, depending on engine condition, driving styles and other factors. Your Honda owner’s manual will have more information about oil changes and other service intervals.
