Default High mileage oil?

My 2008 Camry Hybrid has around 110,000 miles. Iíve used standard oil, changing it every six months.
Is it worth considering "high mileage" oil, or should I leave well enough alone?
Probably keeping the car for another year or two
Thanks

All that crap is gimmicks and marketing. The only thing you can say with any confidence is that synthetic is better than non-synthetic.

Buy ANY brand of multiweight oil specified by the manufacturer. Change it every 7500 miles or less or in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations.

I use 0W-20 Mobil 1 synthetic. I change it about every 10-12K miles adding 3-4 quarts over that period.. The Priuses in question are an 08 with 175K miles and the other is an 07 with 215K miles.

Thanks!
I avoid the marketing nonsense
I'm a guy that has probably purchased off brand name gas almost exclusively over the last 40 years

Same, EXCEPT I try to stick with "top tier" gas, which excludes a lot of the cheapest convenience stores, but includes QT and others.
