I do not like synthetic oils, just dosn't work for a lot of things they say it does, and they say once you use it, you cannot go back, that makes me especially leary of using it. Can't put it into a fresh motor because the rings wouldn't seat otherwise. Valvoline is also good. If you got a high milage engine, don't use the high milage stuff, it's virtully the same but with some stop leak added.

Super Tech is actually a very good oil in the low/mid price oils. Its made by either Mobil or Shell/Exxon, depending on location.

Here is some good reading on it.
