Presumably, if there is no need to change the oil every 5k miles with synthetic, then a problem (e.g. seized engine) won't arise by not doing so.
SO, here's the question: if I am using Mobil 1 synthetic oil, how often is it recommended that I change the oil? Still every 5k miles or can I go a longer interval (e.g. 10k, 15k)? If the answer is I should still change every 5k miles, why then spend the extra money on synthetic?
Thanks in advance for any help.
