You have made a very good choice with your brand of oil, and some acknowledge that you can get to 25k with that particular oil without any harm to the engine. You are using 5/40 which is fine in hot climates, I use the same grade here in Southern Spain.

If you stick to that brand and grade of oil 12,500k is perfectly OK to change the oil and filter. Also remember the a diesel engine will make the oil appear black compared with a gasoline engine.
