Buick Encore Oil Type

2022 Buick Encore Grille


The best way to keep your Buick Encore running smoothly on Ocala roads is to bring it into our service centerfor regular service. The Buick Encore operates on service intervals of every 7,500 miles, which usually means you’ll be coming in for maintenance every seven to eight months if the Encore is your daily driver. At each maintenance appointment, our service team will inspect your vehicle, replace any necessary components, and make sure everything is in the best condition possible.

One of the services we perform at every maintenance appointment is an oil change. This is one of your car’s most essential services since it protects your engine and keeps it working smoothly and effectively in and around The Villages. It’s important to use the correct oil type for your Encore. There are many different grades and varieties, and using the wrong kind can put your engine at risk. So, what’s the Buick Encore oil type?

The Buick Encore runs on synthetic oil with a grade of 5W-30. Learn more important information about Buick Encore oil changes in the following guide.

Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil: Which Should You Use for a Buick Encore Oil Change?

Although synthetic and conventional oil are both petroleum-based, there are differences between the two. You can technically use conventional oil in the Buick Encore, but it isn’t as effective, and you’ll have to change it every 3,000 miles rather than every 7,500, which could cost you more.

Conventional (or regular) oil is mined directly from the ground. It’s the type of oil that’s been used in automobiles since their invention and is generally affordable and reliable. Synthetic oil is relatively new and chemically processed in a laboratory to provide higher and longer-lasting performance. For these reasons, synthetic oil is also more expensive, but it tends to balance out cost-wise since you won’t have to get your Encore’s oil changed as often.
