Choosing the Right Oil for a MINI Cooper

Synthetic is the type of oil a MINI Cooper uses, as it is specially refined to:

  • Last longer
  • Stay cleaner
  • Perform better at high temperatures

The recommended MINI Cooper engine oil depends on the model year. Find out what type of oil your MINI Cooper requires: 

  • 2002 to 2008: Full Synthetic 5W-30
  • 2007 and 2015: Full Synthetic SAE 5W-30 (recommended) or SAE 0W-30 (recommended).
  • 2016 and Newer: Full Synthetic SAE 0W-20 (recommended) or SAE 0W-30

How Often Should You Change Your MINI Cooper Engine Oil?

The recommended MINI Cooper oil type is full synthetic and it should be changed every 15,000 miles. Your owner’s manual will have the specific oil change frequency for your MINI Cooper model. It is important to regularly check the oil level in your MINI to ensure that you are carrying the proper amount and that your vehicle hasn’t developed any leaks. Whenever you change the oil, you should also replace the MINI Cooper oil filter. Your MINI Cooper oil filter helps to keep the oil clean by removing any sludge or debris that the oil picks up over time.
