Synthetic oil and engine noise?

Well I dont answer for Fred, but at 52 weekends a year if your engine is on for 4 hours every weekend you got 205 hours in a year.

By the way, what engine do you have and how often do you change your oil?

As for synthetic oil, good old wikipedia has some good info.
