The oil is still carrying around a lot of crud (acids, etc) that the
filter won't remove.
I prefer to just change oil and filter every 3,000 miles. When I was
doing my own maintenance (which I can't currently, though I'm getting
back towards being able to again), I'd flush the engine every time I
changed the oil as well, and if I dropped the oil pan the bottom end of
the engine was almost white-glove clean.
