Why Does Your Bentley Need Oil Changes?

As a Bentley owner, you know that your luxury vehicle requires a level of expert care and maintenance that ordinary cars do not. The same holds true for your oil changes. While your Bentley probably requires fewer oil changes than normal cars, the oil change process is much more sophisticated due to the vehicle’s advanced machinery. No matter how much mileage your Bentley has on it, regular oil changes are essential to maintain peak performance and engine longevity. Neglecting to change the oil in your Bentley can lead to internal friction and cause many otherwise avoidable problems over time.

What Kind of Oil Does Your Bentley Need?

The specific type of oil that your Bentley needs depends mostly on the car’s model and year. Bentley recommends Mobil 1 advanced full synthetic oil for nearly all of its current models. This type of oil is designed for high-performance engines and will protect delicate engine parts from heat and friction. The size and number of cylinders your engine has will determine whether you need to use 0W-40 or 5W-30 oil. You will find what kind of oil the manufacturer recommends in your owner’s manual. A worthwhile European luxury repair shop can tell you the proper oil type to use as well. Don’t put anything other than the recommended oil in your Bentley’s engine, as doing so could seriously damage it.

How Often Should You Change the Oil in Your Bentley?

Because Bentley builds its engines using high-grade components, they don’t require oil changes as often as standard vehicles do. Still, Bentley manufacturers recommend that you change your oil at least once a year, or every 6,000 to 10,000 miles. If you have a classic Bentley model, you will probably need to change the oil more frequently. Check your owner’s manual for more details. A modern Bentley will likely have an oil life monitor that will alert you or your dealer when it is time to change the oil. Before taking your highly valuable vehicle in for servicing, ensure that the repair shop is Bentley certified.
