    Default Synthetic oil in cultus

    I have 2004 vxr cultus , 140k km odo, water dropping well mantained engine. Oil i have been using is caltex havoline formula 10w30 from a decade , which i change after 5 to 7k kms which cost me around 2200 . Now i am planning to switch to synthetic oil which hopefully will last 15k and costing around 3000. So from a broad perspective as per i am guessing i will be saving money on synthetic oil in long run.
    So my question is the above mentioned theory of mine is either true or not ? And is it safe to use synthetic oil in a car which is 12 years old and already driven 142000 kms ?

    @syedozairahmed
    I think your car is also having direct fan and no t.valve. In such a situation this much drain interval is insane...
    Well if you are satisfied then its ok...!

    I am just telling you what i have been doing from a decade , plus oil manufacturing companies are there to increase their sell not for the costumer's benefit, next time after 4500km do a self test of engine oil about its condition you will come to know why i am doing it at 7 to 8 k and still getting superb performance
