I started using full synthetic oil about 10 years ago, my last car got 336,000 miles on the engine with out ANY major repair needed. I actually sold the car for $750 because it still ran well enough to pass the State Emissions test. So yes, I am a firm believer. I use Mobil 1 full synthetic and change it every 4000.
