Question synthethic oil. which do you use?

So which one do you guys use and what weight for our area? There seems to be tons of posts about Mobile 1. I am almost at 12k miles and on my next oil change i want to switch to synthethic.

Thanks,

Matt...

I'm currently using Redline 10w30 but will be switching to 5w30 for the winter. No complaints yet. You really have to wonder how people judge their motor oil. You really have to do some very scientific testing to find out which motor oil outperforms another. You can find research on websites, but it seems that almost any synthetic motor oil is more than enough for the average Joe who occasionally goes on a "spirited" drive.

I agree w/ Steppin razor. Mobil 1 10w30 year round. because it is available everywhere for a good price and Mobil 1 is used in many high performance cars.
