On Delvac 1 and other synthetics, you can probably go 5000 miles or longer depending on the results of your analysis. Most people here will tell you the oil turns black instantly after an oil change. When I do my 2-hour oil change I tilt the car to help it drain better, then flush it with fresh oil. This way, I get rid off a lot more soot which likes to accumulate on the bottom of the oil pan and the oil stays semi-transparent for a few hundred miles.
