Ive never used it in anything. Others might have a different opinion.
If you have a leaky seal, an additive isnt going to fix that.

I run a good syn all year round. ( Canada = cold )

I have always been one to over service things,,, I am a big believer in Lub & Service,,, & preventive maintenance of every thing I own !!! I change the filters & oil in my lawn tractors way before the recommendations !!! But maybe I dropped the ball on our V-10,,, we have a 2013 Sunseeker that we bought new in 2014,,, so it is really 3 years + old,,, we have just under 4K miles on it and the original oil !!!
Which I will be changing before our first trip this year !!!

For the Ford recommended oil change frequency see the Scheduled Maintenance Section of your Ford Owners Manual. For the 2016 chassis the E-450 chassis the manual states:

NORMAL SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE
Every 7500 miles (12000 km) or six months (whichever comes first)
Change engine oil and filter.
Rotate tires*, inspect tire wear and measure tread depth.
Inspect wheels and related components for abnormal noise, wear, looseness or drag.
Perform multi-point inspection (recommended).
* Vehicles with dual rear wheels should rotate the front wheels when specified; rear wheels only if unusual wear is noted.

That is from Page 271 in the 2016 E-450 Owners Manual. You can download a .pdf copy of the Ford Owners Manuals Here.

It's interesting they don't recommend regular rotation of the rear duals...

My thoughts are than 7500 miles is to far,,, 5000 would be max for me,,,
But I think 6 months is to soon,,, for us that could be ever 2000 miles !!!
Not arguing with FORD,,, they know a hell of a lot more than I do !!!
I have been buying FORDS since 1962 !!!
At this time we own,,,
2003 F-150
2011 EDGE
2013 V-10

If you change the oil and park it there is no reason to change the oil in the spring. Keep the oil changed and you will be fine. The 6 month limit is for short trippers (like me) who only drive 4K miles a year. That builds up a lot of moisture which leads to corrosion and acidic elements in the oil. Changing the oil and parking it for 5-6 months will not hurt anything.

Then again, $100k for a MH.........one extra $40-$50 oil change a year is nothing.

Wow $200 in oil change every 3000 miles does seem excessive.
