Color is not an indicator of wear protection.

Yeah I change mine every roughly 3000 miles, even with full synthetic. But that'* because I like to make sure nothing goes wrong internally, especially with the way I drive sometimes....plus it'* always pitch black when I change it..That just means the oil'* doing it'* job but, I like to keep it cleaner.

My buddy who got me started on AMSOIL runs it in his sprint cars due to a sponsorship. I think he runs two maybe three weekends before a change.
