SOURCE: NEED OIL CHANGE
High mileage synthetic oil is a good option, especially if you have over 100k miles. If you want to go with the recommended oil for your vehicle, I would also recommend an additive such as Lucas Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer. Been using it in my vehicles for years and I swear by it. It's a bit pricey ($20 range) but I go 6k to 9k between oil changes. You can read a little more about it here:
