Semi-synthetic motor oil is named after its blended composition of conventional and synthetic oils. This composition renders a motor oil with attractive qualities for many Volkswagen owners.

The conventional portion of semi-synthetic oil’s composition allows a reduced price than full-synthetic. The attractive benefit of semi-synthetic motor oil is that it provides better performance than conventional at a lower price than full-synthetic. Semi-synthetic motor oil requires change services every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.

Oil changes at the recommended miles clean the engine by removing broken-down oil full of debris while introducing fresh lubrication at optimum viscosity. This is what happens to the engine when oil changes occur after the recommended miles/interval:
