I strongly recommend synthetic over petroleum based oils. Synthetics have been proven to maintain better viscosity over broader temperature extremes. I recently read an article that claimed that there was not much difference in the "life" of the different oils. Petroleums wear down and synthetics become contaimenated. This article listed the maximum life of all of the oils they tested as ~8,000 miles. This test included Mobil 1, Amsoil, Castrol Syntec, Pennzane (Penzoil's Synthetic), and many others including several petroleum based oils.
