Now the last time I changed my oil I switched to a synth hoping for longer life better mpgs. Well I def got better mpgs but the oil did not out last the conventional any longer than normal. See from what I read, (i ride motorcycles and for anyone that's in a forum knows those guys are crazy about oil) everyone makes it seem like oil holds up to this and does this and that. See your oils might hold up to high temp and not lose its vicous properties, but it still gets DIRTY. All that dirt and byproduct from the air and combustion dirty the oil causeing the premature wear in parts. Also it breaks it down. Synth is a sham just like I always thought. You can't keep oil clean! Ill keep it in for the mpgs though.
Why would you be changing oils anyway?

You just realized that oils made a difference in MPG and performance. Well thats a good start.

Me personally I have always ran a Synthetic, primarily mobile one, with a mobile one filter. The filter is one of the biggest elements in the longevity and usefulness of the oil.

you really need to send youre oil out to be analyzed, because it really sounds like you have other issues.Blackstone Labs
i have a jeep with a 4.0 litre with nearly 320,000 miles on it and at 3,000 miles the oil is still clean looking i dont change it till 5,000 miles and even than its not totally black, and never thin and watery looking, unless of course you forgot warm oil out of a hot motor is thinner than room temp oil.
and fyi there are filtration systems used on semi trucks that allow up to 300,000 mile intervals on oil changes,with only filters changed at regular intervals, oil dosent wear out it just gets comtaminated heres a few examples of how long oil can and does last, Trucker Testimonials
so either you have other issues with youre motor or you are just tossing money in the trash
