2000 Honda Odyssey mileage: 97,050. Is one oil better than another? Synthetic vs. Petroleum base? I know that car makers say to change every 7500 miles but I have been a 2500-3000 mile oil changer. Is the 7500-mile new rule for environmental purposes or can the oil withstand the pressures longer.

Synthetic oils do have a longer life than the petroleum based motor oils. If you change your oil every 3000 miles, you probably will not get any benefit out of the higher priced synthetic oils.
