I have right at 80 thousand miles on a near perfect truck. Have never, ever had to add a single drop of oil. I go a year between oil changes because I drive only about 3500 miles per year. Thinking about going to Synthetic 5w30 oil. I've always ran 10w30 regular oil. What do you think?

If you're asking what the mileage should be between oil changes don't go by what the owner's manual tells you, it's best to change the oil and filter at least every 3 to 4 thousand miles miles as it's a cheap insurance to make your engine last longer with minimal sludge build up in the engine.
fuel filter, air filter, tran fluid filter and change.( if its an auto) transfer case drain and refill, plugs and wires, coolant system drain and refill, thermostat, they claim timing chain/belt, but thats an awful lot of work to get into that.. how long has it been sinse you changed brake pads, rotors, and drums? may want to consider that..hope this kinda gives you a good idea
every 6000miles with a oil filter every third oil change ,use the cheapest oil from supermarket natural or synthetic it doesnt matter ,even mix them not a problem ,inside of engine will stay clean and like this it will run forever and a day
Although I have never had oil consumption in that range, I recall having seen someone whining about Saturn (I HATE SATURNS) while I was looking for a potential class-action lawsuit and they were using a quart every ~ 1500 miles on a car with some 20-30,000 miles and were also told that this was 'in the right range.'
That may be an indication of wear causing oil loss so it bears close watching.
My Saturn, purchased new, dropped a rod cap at 57,600 miles after eating thousands of dollars for many other failures.
I would have been glad to see a 100k on it before it died . . .
