Synthetic 15-40

I have a 1996 7.3. I have been running schaffers synthetic in it. I change it every 7k like they say to do. I am just wondering if it is worth the expense?Or should i go back to just running rotella in it?

Also how often should the fuel filter be changed?

Keep using the Schaeffers, it is very good oil. Change it every 10,000 miles if you use a by-pass oil filter. Have been using the 9000 synthetic for years....
