I would suggest, if you're starting from an unknown position, that you drain
and replace the old filter and refill with cheap synthetic once - then drain
and fit a new filter with branded (for preference Mobil 1) synthetic perhaps a
couple of hundred miles later.
The reason is that a lot of oil stays in the oil cooler and lifters during a
change. A 'preliminary' change will flush a fair amount of this stuff out/
And if you take this level of care - there _IS_ no mileage limit.
