    Synthetic blend every 3k miles/6 months, seems to be doing just fine for the 30k miles I've put on during my ownership

      synthetic but only because I'm severely autistic. Conventional would do the job perfectly fine

      case in point. 30k is nothing. You could have done 3 conventional oil changes and it would drive just as well. You're an autistic sperg

        >3k miles
        it isnt 1988 anymore, oils can go for 7-8k miles without a problem.
        anything on the shelf in SN or SP API grade and can easily do this mileage

        Don't care, 3k is my way

        True, oil is better than ever, but mileage you can go definitely depends on engine. Never go over 4-5k on the Ford 4.0 SOHC, or GM 3.6, no matter what oil and filter you use.

        Really just be extra careful with American OHC engines in general.

      Obviously synthetic. But frick that name. The oil used is fricking organic oil from crust. It is just chemically altered.

    4T for most brands is synthetic. You don't know what the frick you're talking about.

        Yeah you're telling someone to blow their engine on a weight like that if they require 10w-40.

        I'm not saying you can't but "SPORT BIKES ONLY USE CONVENTIONAL" is fricking moron tier when many recommend synthetic from factory. Its also probably why so few sportbike engines don't make it past 30k with that sort of boomer logic out there.

          Why? Because of the clutch?

          Everything moves faster on a sportbike and thus requires more frequent lubrication.
          You need the oil to be thinner on a sportbike that has high revs.

            Friction additive is used for wet clutches, Conventional or not has nothing to do with it.

    I use semi-synthetic oil. My car is 23 yo and the previous owner (old head died) didn't care much about oil changes so some gunk is to be expected. If I used fully synthetic the seals would probably leak or some line would clog because of the gunk.

    interval matters way more
    synthetic doesn't have magical compounds that repair your engine or something. as long as its the right weight there's no effect.
    just change every 5k and it's literally irrelevant. if you want to go 10k between changes then yes synthetic is mandatory.

      you mean if something stops working properly, giving the car time to rest and heal won't help?

      I mean, I've been there before.
      I was dailying a 70s car because I couldn't afford nicer and when it needed oil changes it got the 99 cent a quart oil from the auto parts store that said "not for vehicles newer than 1984" on the bottle

    you can't even buy REAL class 5 synthetics at stores.
    it's all israeli marketing at this point.
    real Syn oil is $20 a quart.

      You can't use a pure PAO because it doesn't mix with additives. There needs to be some kind of ester blended in to carry the stuff oil actually needs.
      The correct "best oil" is simply that, PAO and a high purity ester blend stock.

    I buy $60 5 gallon buckets of conventional 15w-40 diesel oil in all my cars. I don't care if it's supposed to get 10w-40, 10w-30, or 5w-20, I paid 3 digits for a lot of them and they're lucky to get oil changes at all.

    synthetic european vw 502.00 because my cars a prissy little picky b***h.

    but unironically unless your car can't run synthetic, you should be using synthetic oil and a premium performance filter and changing that shit like every 3k or 5k. Proper fluid changes and a few extra bucks for good shit will dramatically improve your engine life over time.

    A conventional oil change at my local shop is $40. They tell me to come back at 3k miles and I tell them I’ll see them at 5k. I’ve never noticed any difference, having used both conventional and high mileage, high performance synthetic.
