Your are absolutely right. It is pre-set mindset that causes people to change every 5K. Modern engines and modern oils don't require this. My friend has a Scorpio 2.6 (Non CRDe). He has been doing oil changes every 10K at Mahindra *** and using his vehicle mostly in Bangalore. His Scorpio has clocked 180K miles to date and is running fine. I personally drove my MClass for about 1 lakh miles (not kms) with oil changes every 15K miles with Mobile 1. I am plan to stick to company guidelines for my scorpio which is every 15K miles with OEM oil.

try using the Mobil 1300 (if available) or the Delvac MX. They have worked very well for me.
About additives, I hope you don't use premium diesel. Much better to use normal diesel with Bardahl Fuel additive (available at Tata dealers), Wynn's (available at Hyundai's) or System-D (Available at HP petrol pumps) on a regular basis.
With the above usage, it is good to try using the Fuel Injector Cleaner by Valvoline. I have been very happy with the results. Use one bottle in a full-tank and then about 100-130 litres later you can go back to your regular fuel additives.
