How often should I change Royal PurpleŽ in my passenger car?

Royal PurpleŽ recommends following the manufacturer's maintenance intervals while the vehicle is under factory warranty. In clean engines that are no longer under warranty, oil change intervals up to 12,000 miles with continued filter changes every 3,000 to 4,000 miles (top-off oil as needed) are recommended. In dirty engines, Royal PurpleŽ recommends standard 3,000 to 5,000 mile oil and filter change intervals until the engine oiling system is clean and free of deposits, which are left by lower quality oils and / or poor maintenance or mechanical problems. This will allow time to gradually remove existing deposits / contaminants without overloading the oiling system (pump, pick-up, filter, etc.). (Mechanical problems such as fuel dilution, coolant leaks into the crankcase, poor air filtration and / or failure to maintain proper oil level are all detrimental factors to the service life of any engine oil. Any one of these factors can significantly shorten the useful service life of any oil).

How are you supposed to take off your oil filter with all that oil in there. Aren't you going to be loosing a lot of oil when you take that off? Anyway I am just going to stick with every 5000km

I would break your engine in on dino oil(non synthetic) first. With synthetic oil you have a greater possibilty to glaze a ring and not have it seal correctly. Also change your oil much more frequnetly than your normal oil changes.. say 1000 km, 2500km then 5000km.
