    Only way to be sure is to get an oil analysis done-Make sure the environmentals and wear characteristics are tracking properly.
    There are folks who use Mobil1 for 15K and just change filters and add a bit every 5K or so. Some AMSOIL users go a whole year without an oil change....so long OCIs are possible.

    Every 5,000mi or 6 months like the manual says...

    Just because it's a better lubricant doesn't mean the filter works any less. Engines produce the same contaminants regardless of oil type, synthetic just happens to be better at suspending these contaminants.

    If anything, filters work *harder* with synthetic oil.

    Owner's manual people...owner's manual...
