More info: Warren makes it. They also make the Walmart Supertech brand.

Typically I use Castrol GTX and change it at 2500 to 3000 miles.
So whats better in the long run??? Synthetic oil and doing longer oil changes 5000 to 8000 or the more frequent changes (even with cheap oil?

My 98 V70 and 96 850 both have 230K and run very strong. Both only use Premium Gas.

Deciding if you believe the spec would. Be step two, to frugality nirvana.
I used to work for Shell Oil and they would bottle various house brands of oil using their filling machines. The difference? They changed the labels on the bottles running through the filling machine.
