I can have the oil tested locally to ensure it is still viable in the vehicle. I have one person locally who uses AMSoil for 20,000 miles per change in his Ford Truck (V-6 NA). Filter changes every 5K. I guess I want to get 12 to 16K with filter changes every 4K. When comparing dumping the oil every 4K, the price per quart is cheaper on the synthetics.

Thank you, I appreciate the information and look forward to hearing from more people.
Every car is different so oil analysis is a smart move to determine the proper interval for your car, climate, driving style.

FYI - Through oil analysis I concluded that 15,000 mile intervals with filter changes at 7500 is the right formula on my Crown Vic that I drive 35-40000 miles per year. A buddy of mine tried Amsoil 15w40 Diesel in his Powerstroke and I think he went 18,000 between changes based on oil anlysis results.
