Well I'm a lover of synthetics . Look at Amsoil . You're low mileage so you''ll get great benefits from it . I am running it in all my cars motor and transmissions . It cost more but you don't have to change it as frequently if you select the correct line of amsoil products . So in the long run you actually will make out . Can't go wrong . www.amsoil.com

yeah if you want to go with synthetics, and do not mind spending the money, I would say Royal Purple oil is a great way to go to...But once you go full synthetic, its not recommended to go back to the convensional oils, so keep that in mind also...http://www.royalpurple.com/index.html

Just a question on synthetic. I know its great, but can you use it on 2001 5.9 with 154k and never used it on the motor before.
