    That's such bullshit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    you should not have any issues. Car should feel a bit smoother on the Synthetic oil.

    BTW what kind of car?

    What?
    just use synthetic oil and don't look back. You don't have to change your oil @ 3000 miles.


    every 7500 miles is where most people change when they use synthetic. They take much longer to break down than dino oil.

    Also, it's been proven over and over again that a car with synthetic oil will outlast a car that uses dino oil.

    bull fucking shit. There are a LOT of things they don't do at the factory that HELP you. Both in performance and reliability. Synthetic motor oil is ONE of the things that benefit both.

    you're a fucking dumbass. Synthetic oil has proven time and time again to provide slight increases in fuel economy -- something that results from an increase in efficiency (caused by a decrease in frictional forces) Btw, for someone as ignorant as you, an increase in efficiency, while maintaining all other factors, nets an increase in performance.
