I've been running Amsol 5w30 synthetic in my 04 Duratec for the past 3 years, normally changing the oil and filter about every 7,000 miles. I took a look at the Amsol web-site and it says 25,000 miles or yearly under normal conditions.:eek: Am I wasting oil by changing so early?

What do you guys thinK?

Yes, you are wasting oil. If you run a good enough filter you should be fine. When you run better oil, you filter lasts longer.

I use the Puralator Pure One filter, but according to the Taurus WIKI the Motorcraft filters are the same and much cheaper.

I use Amsoil's 100% synthetic 0W-20 with their EA034 filter. I change it once a year which is usually around 10,000-15,000 miles.
