I would run only full synthetic oil if you haven't been from now on.
Thanks that does make me a "tad" bit more confident.

Althought I do have a question is using the synthetic oil because it won't have to be changed as often? It that really the best?

Only asking because I am a stickler in getting the oil changed every 3000 miles. Something my Father taught me when I bought my very first car....1966 Mustang.

So since I change it more often do you still recommend the synthetic? I do understand that synthetic is more expensive yet I still would keep up with the 3000 mile change.

Thanks again for your comments/input.
