Heck i was always a beleiver that oil is oil and your paying the overpriced dollar for just the name on the jug. And the argument that conventional does the job just as good as synthetic. Well , what are you using and have you sensed a difference ? 10w is 10w right ?

On my personal toys I run Royal Purple full synthetic oil with an extended change interval.

Yea... There is no difference between oils...
Just use the cheapest shiot you can find...
And never change it until it looks like tar on the dipstick...

I've never had a problem running conventional, compared to synthetic.

I have a re-manufactured {not re-built, I learned that there is a difference} engine in my work van. Chevy 350 V-8. I have been putting Mobil 1 full synthetic in it.

I use synthetic and extended life oil filters. At 10,000 miles per change, I save myself two cycles. However, I do check the dip stick closely when filling up after 8K.
