Royal Purple® suggests adhering to manufacturer’s recommendedoil change intervals for vehicles under warranty. Vehicles that are no longer under warranty can frequently double or triple the number of miles between oil changes depending on the vehicle, its condition, the way it’s used (excessive idling), and the oil filter that is used. For guidelines specific to your vehicle, we recommend contacting our technical department at rpautotech@www.royalpurple.com.
