Well, are you looking for documented facts or merely opinions?

Top quality synthetic oils usually cost less to use than their cheap, dead dinosaur counterparts. Unfortunately, some folks confuse price with cost. I wouldn't put dead dinosaur oil in any vehicle, unless it was headed to the junkyard!

Let me guess - Engineers that either work for an oil company or have been given free/discounted product contracts for saying it.

Nah, Corvette engineers and engineers from BMW, Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Aston Martin, etc., etc., etc.

I'll try again; Synthetic Oil: Rx For Long Engine Life - http://getahelmet.com/jeeps/tech/syntheticoil/

It's a great read and will provide a solid education on synthetic oil technology.

It's a waste of money and resources. Changing oil too often can also damage an engine, causing premature wear.
bahahaha!!! Are you kidding me?! Thats so hilarious! I'd like to see some actual information where it says changing your oil too often can damage your engine. Absolutely LOVE to see it. '

And as far as you get what you pay for - yeah, your helping pay for all their massive advertising... Its so sad you buy into all that hype and garbage...
