    I own a 1979 Chevy Pickup (350ci) Longbed,
    I have no idea how many miles or on it because the speedo
    does not work and I dont know how long it hasnt worked...

    So,

    Which would you use and why?

    Regular Oil.....
    Synthetic Oil...
    High millage Oil....

    Please give me as much info as you can, anything will help...
    and
    Which ever you use, in your opinon what is the bonus about it?

    Thanks in advance for all the input....

    I can tell you how regular oil changed every 3 to 5 thousand kept the wife's 1986 full size ford wagon running for a total of 282 thousands miles. I even drove it too the junk yard last week in trade for a 1986 C30. :D Rick

    Regular oil changed regularly is fine.The high mileage is vay overpriced for a few extra additives.
