Always the same drum getting beat.........Somebody wants to run some low price point oil in a complex engine that requires above average maintenance. This same discussion can be found almost everywhere on the net, on most anything with engine, except for certificated aircraft engines.
As a person who maintains and services other peoples equipment, and has spent a lot of other peoples money on maintaining their investment, the single most important, and lowest cost maintenance item, is quality oil........ changed regularly.
I personally change my Multi's oil when it starts to shift differently. Usually this happens around 2200-2500Mi. Just my .02
