Dirty oil pooling affecting head gasket life.

I had not considered that.

I found it interesting that Subaru changed the oil change interval.

My '14 Forester required 7500 mile changes.

My '17 and '18 Foresters required 6000 mile changes.

The same 0-20 fuel economy full synthetic oil is specified.

Could the cleaner oil help the head gaskets live longer?
