2011 Prius oil change. I'm aware that synthetic 0-20 is the oil of choice, however there are dino 0-20 oils as well. Is unwise to use the dino oil? My dealer support person says the synthetic is good for 10K miles, should I accept that as gospel, seems a lot of miles on one change. What is the cartridge filter number, I'm doing my own oil changes, can't be that difficult.

I change the oil every 5000 miles. My reasoning is Prius engines start and stop a lot. It is fast start as MG1 gets it to about 1000 rpm in a very short time. I want the best oil I can get to prolong engine life. Used Mobile 1 5W-30 in my 2004 and using the Toyota 0-20 in my Prius V now.
