Myself and a few friends have run a lot of Havoline over the years and have had great results with the stuff...

I have never seen that happen... and I know a couple of people that have used only the Supertech... One guy for the ownership of his car.... I think he made it to 250k then traded it in... Car still ran great and never burned any oil...

However.. If I used Dino I perfer Havoline

Any SM GF-4 dino oil should be more than enough to get most engines to 150-200k without a problem.

But for those that might want to go longer between changes, or those who drive a bit harder (and see higher oil temps), they will have better luck with synthetics. Also, with some engines that are more sludge prone, you'll want synthetic. And if you live in an area with extremely cold winter temps, and your car is parked outside, you'll definitely want a good synthetic!.

Also Synthetics will help keep things cleaner in my opinion. Less likely to get sludge and varnish, better flow in colder temps, better resistance to oxidation, and less likely to shear down..

this is the corvette and chevett thing.

How much money are you saving between the Castrol and the Super Tech? Just curious.
