Synthetic vs' Fossil

Hi all!

Just about due for an Oil change, wondering weather to switch to synthetic oil, and if oil filter choice makes a difference in proformance.

Thx, Crispy

For some reason this topic gets pretty heated.

Some say synth is better...some say crude is better...some say they are just the same.

I use synth...it's twice as expensive but you only have to change it half as often. so in the end it costs the same but it's 1/2 the work.

As far as filters...I know to stay away from Fram.
