A friend of mine use to race in CA. Every time he blew an engine, he was using synthetic. He isn't a big believer.

Myself - I doubt it makes that big of a difference. If your engine was designed to run on Dino oil, then it is OK. My Camry is designed to run on 0-20 synthetic, so that is what it gets. My Silverado gets 5-30 Dino. Both are around 120K miles. Both will probably easily make it to 200K, which is usually when I start thinking about a new car. Next one is either a hybrid, or electric.
