Proper MAZDA6 Oil Types by Engine 

So, what type of oil is recommended for the Mazda6? The Mazda6 oil type that Tampa drivers should use if their model features a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 engine is SAE 0W-20 oil. This is a synthetic blend. If your Mazda6 features a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine, use SAE 5W-30 oil, which is a full synthetic oil. 

Conventional vs. Synthetic Oil: What’s the Difference? 

Wondering what the difference is between conventional and synthetic oil? Both are refined from crude oil, but unlike conventional oil, synthetic oil makes use of a number of additives that further distill the oil. The more distilled the oil, the longer it lasts, and the sleeker it is, meaning that your engine doesn’t have to work as hard to achieve optimum performance. In sum, synthetic oil lasts longer, and it’s more efficient. As for synthetic blends, they slot right between conventional and synthetic, blending both types of oil to provide you with longer-lasting oil that’s not quite as effective or expensive as synthetic oil, while offering higher quality and better value than conventional oil for a modest bump in price.
