All my vehicles and even the lawn mower is on synthetic to prolong life! 1979 928 1984 944 1978 924 1988 Buick Reatta 1988 Buick Riveria 1997 Yamaha V-twin Virago motorcycle (w/wet clutch) 1998 Briggs-Stratton 4-cycle 3.5 HP lawn mower Seriously, being a former mechanic, synthetic is just plain better than regular petroleum based lubricants. All the vehicles listed above I have changed over. I have noticed a difference with the older vehicles in oil pressure being higher even under extreme summer heat and city driving. Some vehicles run slightly cooler (the 924 & 944) than before and the 928 has lower mechcanical noise in the overhead valvetrain. I use nothing but synthetic or even synthetic-blend if I have to.
