Oil & Fluids

The Genuine Subaru Oil difference.

Engine designs vary from one automotive manufacturer to another, each creating different internal conditions that require the right type of oil to protect against heat and friction. This is why we recommend filling up with Genuine Subaru Oil, because it’s the ONLY oil formulated specifically for your SUBARU BOXER® engine.

Why choose Genuine Subaru Oil?

  • Engineered to clean and protect internal engine components between oil changes better than most leading aftermarket brands*
  • Formulated with a unique blend of additives, detergents, and modifiers specific for the lubrication needs of the SUBARU BOXER® engine
  • Reduces wear and cleans internal components to maximize engine life and maintain optimal fuel economy
  • Each batch is lab-tested over 10 different ways to help ensure consistent quality

*Based on a 2017 independent study conducted by Idemitsu Lubricants America comparing engine protection results between 0W-20 Genuine Subaru Oil and leading aftermarket 0W-20 synthetic oil brands.

When it’s time, an oil change is something you shouldn’t put off doing. That’s why our Service Center is conveniently open for you with Factory Trained Teams who work on Subaru vehicles every day.

See when your Subaru should have its oil changed by using the Maintenance Schedule Lookup tool below.*

Stick to your oil change intervals.

Subaru recommends that you check the oil level on your dipstick at every other fuel stop. Depending on your driving style and other conditions, your engine may consume oil more frequently between oil changes. It’s good practice to check the level regularly to help ensure your Subaru continues performing safely. It’s easy and anyone can do it. Here’s how:

Oil Chart

Your Subaru uses different fluids to help support and protect its various systems. Our Factory Trained Teams inspect them each time you visit us for service during the Free Multi-Point Inspection. It also helps to keep an eye on these fluid levels yourself from time to time. It’s simple – just open your hood and look for the yellow caps. Check out the videos below to learn more. And for detailed instructions, refer to your Owner’s Manual.

How to Tell When It's Time to Change Your Oil

Generally, you should always stick to recommended oil change mileage intervals to avoid damage to your engine from low oil levels, but if your oil does become depleted your Subaru has dashboard lights to alert you it may be time for an oil change. In particular, be on the lookout for for oil can light (which resembles a "genie lamp" in appearance) as an indicator your oil level is too low. This light is actually called the oil pressure gauge and it means you are low on oil.

Driving when you are low on oil is a quick way to burn up your engine. However, there is no need to panic. If this light appears when you are on the road, pull over as soon as it is safe to do so. If the light shows up when you first start your car, turn your vehicle off and check your oil level.
