So, just to weigh in, Mobil came out with synthetic oil in 1974. I have a ‘97 Cobra with 28,500 pampered miles, ie, no rain and all original except tires and battery. I run Mobil 1 5W-20 or 0W-20. It is always stored for the winter, summer driven. No issues at all, no burning of oil, engine still tight. Always use a Ford oil filter.

I first ran across it in the mid 70's, thought it was "snake oil" at first. I also remember the ARCO Graphite, talk about leaks and stains. Yes I am that old.
