I think like 0-30 right?  I'd love to see an oil
analysis of this stuff after 25-30k.  0-NO weight?  I
wonder if even a good synthetic will hold up that
long?  I recently ran almost 25k miles on Mobil 1 in
my 200.  I did check it carefully.  It never got black
OR thin the whole time.  I think 3k may be overkill if
you're diligent, but I guess it's better to be safe
than sorry.
