Default Oil

Simple question.

I have regulary changed my oil and filter every 6 to 8 thousand miles instead of the recommended 15 thousand miles.

Is there any point in using a different viscosity oil now it has done 260K miles.

IE a thicker or thinner oil

Answers on a postcard please.

I've stuck with 10/40 semi synthetic from new until now and at 441k the engine still seems fine. It gets changed as per the Rover service schedule.
