I will be using Castrol Syntec this year... Hopefully it wont burn like Mobil 1 does.

I considered the Motul Ester-based synthetic, but it would come out to $50 for roughly 4 qts (4 liters).

I got my oil changed for $19 today. Synthetic is overrated.

Also found another quote that I found interesting: "Considering the million of years it took to make it, I don't think you or your grandchildren's grandchildren have anything to worry about."
