Question: Do You Use Conventional or Synthetic Motor Oil?

Conventional vs Synthetic Oil

Below, you’ll find a video of two race drivers – British Grand Prix World Champion Jenson Button (now racing for McLaren,) and NASCAR driver and team owner Tony Stewart – doing what appears to be a bit of awkward yoga and eating Oreos dipped in cola. You’re welcome.

But before that, I have a question for you.

When changing your oil, do you use conventional or synthetic? Why, and for what type of car?

Mobil 1, which is the same oil Aaron just used to change the oil on his Honda S2000, just put out this commercial with the two drivers doing their thing, check it out and let us know what you think:

Hi! I founded in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
