Opinions vary on this.

>From what I have been told, Amsoil could last 10K miles, I have changed however the Amsoil every past 5K miles (32K miles on MY02), and currently on 6K miles. As I am scheduled to attend driving event on April 22nd, I will change oil as close to event as possible.

Curious to hear back from any others on this......

That being said, IIRC, in Europe, oil is changed every 15K to 20K miles, is there a good explanation for as well ?!!??

A question to those using synth?  How often should this oil be changed?
I've always been in the habit of changing my oil every 3K miles, but was
told that with Synth, it should be changed every 10K!  Is that right?!
