I change my filter at every oil change, and I change the oil (in the C280) at just about 3,000 miles if I'm using Dino oil. But if I'm using synthetic, I will go to about 4,500-5,200 miles (roughly) before a change.
I changed over to synthetic at about 100,000 miles and I didn't have any leaks. But my last oil change they used Dino because I took it in... What do you guys think of going back and forth?
(I'm sure it's totally fine.)
