Do the synth. Dino oil at 3K intervals means you have a very very clean engine and at only 61K means it is likely in great shape.

I'd do full synthetic and change at 6k+ intervals. Do an oil analysis and you would probably find you could go 10K intervals, maybe more before the oil approaches it's wear out point.
