I've run synthetic oil in everything(lawnmower included) for several years. A friend(Army Colonel)was in charge of a test of Mobil 1 when it first came out. They took several vehicles and ran them for 100,00 miles with Mobil synthetic and regular oil changes. They disassembled the engines to check for wear. He said there was so little wear they reassembled the engines using the old rings/bearings. They only replaced the gaskets.
That made me a believer in synthetic oil.
