Another take on fluid changes

I change my oil approx every 10,000 miles. I have to add a quart of oil every full tank of gas so there is always some new oil in the pan. I just wait for it to go black before changing it. My longest period between oil changes was 55,000 miles a few years back. Is that bad?? I use the regular Oil, no high milage oil
The owner of the vehicle above made over 1 million miles on original engine and transmission still running strong. What model of Mercedes is it? None.
He is talking about his 1997 Ford E-250 Cargo van
Funny advertisement at the very bottom.
