Today’s rigs do not require the same oil change schedule as they once did. Higher quality parts, oil, and technology allow most big rigs to go as many as 25,000 to 50,000 miles before needing an oil change. However, every vehicle is different and it is important to consider all of the factors when determining an oil change schedule.
The age and engine design will be important factors in your oil change schedule. You also need to take into consideration the types of road conditions the truck is frequently traveling as well as how long the truck is being driven in a certain time period. All of these factors will influence how often the oil in your big rig needs to be changed.
