Wouldnt a lower running temp engine have the potential to last longer? My average running temp is about 160 with temps maybe getting up to 180 with alot of stop and go in town during the summer. When I first got my truck, it would reach up into the 200 range but when I changed over to full synthetic oil, I havent gotten anywhere near that. Truck heats up enough to turn heater on withing the a couple of miles. Not hot air by any means at that point, but warm enough to warrant turning it on.
