Diesel engines are a type of engine design that differs from gasoline engines in the way that it combusts diesel fuel rather than gasoline. Rather than using spark plugs to ignite the fuel mixture injected into the engine’s cylinders, diesel engines use compression to ignite a fuel and air mixture. As a result of this engine design, diesel engines typically produce more torque than gasoline engines. Like gasoline engines, the oil in diesel engines must be drained and replaced routinely.
It is important that you bring your vehicle in for a diesel engine oil change at least every 10,000 miles. Some vehicles require that their engine oil is changed every 3,000 miles, while some vehicles have engines where the diesel oil can be changed every 6,000 miles. The mileage between a vehicle’s oil changes largely depends on the vehicle’s engine design and the type of diesel engine oil used. Besides what is customary across different brands, Volkswagen may recommend different service schedules for different models. Therefore, you need to refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual when determining how often to bring your vehicle in for servicing.
While diesel engine oil can be used to lubricate a gasoline engine in certain applications, only diesel engine oil can be used in a diesel engine. Diesel engines generate more heat than gasoline engines, so the oil in diesel engines has to be able to withstand the heat. Additionally, diesel oil breaks down differently than the oil used in gasoline engines. As many expect, diesel oil tends to be thicker than gasoline engine oil. The thickness of the oil, also known as the viscosity, helps to reduce heat in the engine by retaining it in the oil fluid.
There are several different types of diesel oils on the market. The two most common types are conventional diesel oil and synthetic diesel oil. The primary difference between conventional oil and synthetic oil lies in the way that they are developed. Regardless of the type of oil in your engine, it is important to change the oil in your engine routinely. Feel free to visit our service center, whether you need a conventional diesel oil change or a synthetic diesel oil change.
