"Millions of cars use dino. That's all they need."

Bingo!

All these Drama Queens are quite amusing, whacking each other over the head with their sequined bags regarding whose version of synthetic overkill is the one and only. They sound like the guy on the bizarre contact lens commercial moaning about his 'special eyes' and how no one could have his brand, which of course is just a regular old brand that is available everywhere.

I think there may be self-esteem issues at work here. If you convince yourself that your car needs 'special' oil, your car must be special and so are you for owning it, right? When the reality is that most modern dinos are overkill for most passenger vehicle applications.

I just don't see the benefit spending extra money so that when my worn out hulk is towed to the scrap yard, it will have a nice, shiny clean crankcase. I don't want my engine to last forever, I just want it to last as long as the rest of the car.
