  3. synthetic oil change interval, how many miles between oil changes?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    What many miles do you recommend between oil changes with full synthetic oil, with a V6, 150,000 miles, driving 80% city streets, 20% highway. Also, does the weather affect things, like a cold winter in Minnesota? I always change the filter when I change the oil.
