    Ok guys I need some input.My manual says on an oil change to change oil at 100 hours and filter at 200 hours. Well I have always changed the oil and filter at 50 hours. My question to yall is Im thinking of switching to synthetic and trying to get 100 hours out of an oil and filter change , You that run synthetic oils what oil change interval do you use?????

    The oil can run extended intervals. I have read accounts of LCOs running a full season without changing the oil. The oil filter is another matter. It must be changed at intervals not to exceed the manufacturers recommended change interval. The use of synthetic oil does not make the oil filter last longer.
