Each car is different... I use Pennzoil 10w30 oil.

Valvoline. Although, once the engine starts getting older, I'll probably go with Mobil 1. I don't believe Valvoline makes a synthetic :unsure:

You should not use synthetic on an older engine IMO. If its been on mineral keep it that way. BMW used to use rebranded Mobil but now uses Castrol I believe. With oil though, it isn't as much about what kind but how often you change it. Plus, suit the oil for the engine unless you just have $$$ to throw around.

actually synthetic's proven to be a lot better than traditional oil for higher mileage vehicles. New vehicles it's not so much an issue though.

Sharque, you're just asking for trouble

I figured they did, I've just never seen it. I usually get oil at Wallmart though, their selection is somewhat limited.

In your opinion is exactly right. There's still no definitive guide to oil out there, except for make sure you change it. I'd personally only use synthetic if I thought my filter could make it for 7,500 miles ... there's no reason to use long running oil if you have to pull the filter ever 3,000-4,000 still.
