Benita -- Mobil 1 sells a High Mileage synthetic oil that is formulated for vehicles with more than 75,000 miles.  This synthetic oil contains the additives that prevents leaks and is compatible with the seals in older vehicles.  You may want to consider this option for the added benefits of synthetic oil.  Here is a link to Mobil 1's site that describes their oils:  https://www.mobil.com/en/lubricants/about-us/mobil-1/high-mileage-motor-oil 

I use Mobil 1 and have observed less wear and greater cleanliness on my engine parts.  However, I have experienced oil leaks but in my opinion the advantages provided by synthetic engine oil protection far exceeds the tradeoffs.

>> I just read that synthetic oil  may not be compatible with some older engines! Synthetic motor oil may cause leaks or damage to the seals and gaskets of some older engines that were not designed for it. This is because synthetic oil has different properties and additives than conventional oil, which may not suit the specifications of some engines.  I am curious if any MSCW members have any experience/opinions on this?
