In addition to the wise comments above, I should note that the main benefit to synthetic oil is that it doesn't break down with usage so you can go longer between oil changes. But diesels need their oil changed to remove soot and fuel in addition and that requirement is independent of oil type. Stick with the manufacturer's recommended change intervals unless like Ski you sample the oil and know what you are doing.
