Most people would be perfectly fine on dino oil (myself included), however I use synthetic but only buy it when there's a great deal so it's much closer in price to dino.

So many of the reasons are based on oil fill holes, blot tests, butt dinos, and how it feels. So for the most part this is the guy in the diner talk, not much else that can be really looked up.

Dino. I can't make myself go past 6 months/5000 miles on an oil change. I don't think there is any SN certified oil that would not last that long under normal conditions.
synthetic 21 dino 24

This cracks me up the "better protection" stuff. Engines today will out last the rest of the friggin vehicle on the quality conventional oils we have now. You really want to be concerned about something on your vehicle? The automatic transmission is where you should place those concerns. Not the engine.

All ready there! Changed my factory fill ATF at 15k and now I'm going to do it every 30k or once a year, full synthetic valvoline Dexron VI, and of course filter and gasket as well.

Conventional in everything I own.

I don't see the need to waste money on a synthetic when every engine that I own will outlast the rest of the vehicle when I use a conventional oil. I don't need to feel warm and fuzzy about oil or engines.
