True, but if you change it consistently about every 1,200 miles? I know it's better but honestly, my car runs like a swiss clock with all the attention I give it. I'm not sure if it's entirely necessary. If you do the 5k mile intervals between oil changes, definitely go all out and use synthetic. I agree with 2004SVTAutoXer there!
Lisa Belgetti: When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Michael Delaney: Well, it better be.
Lisa Belgetti: But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Michael Delaney: Lotta people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well. When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.
