Will synthetic oil improve gas mileage?
I have a 2003 Mercury Sable 3.8 V-6. Gets about 16 mpg in the city and about 20 mpg on the freeway. Will synthetic oil improve gas mileage? Thanks, Bryan Connolly email@example.com
The improvement is very slight and probably not noticeable. Run a named brand oil at the manufacturer's recommend grade and change it as the manufacturer recommends. Tire pressure will affect fuel mileage more than anything else in a properly tuned vehicle.
