Subject: Switching to Synthetic...

I have a 92 Ford Ranger pickup with a 3.0 liter engine. The truck has 145,000 miles on it, and runs great. It does, hoever, use 1 quart of oil between changes (every 3,000 miles.) I am using Castrol 10W/30.

I'm thinking about switching to 10W/40 at the next change to see if that will alleviate some of the oil usage. Is this a good idea?

Going a step further, I'm considering switching to Castrol Syntec 5W/50. I use this oil in my 20 year old BMW and love it. However, I started using the synthetic in a freshly rebuilt engine in the car; that engine has about 40,000 miles on it now and has yet to use a single drop of oil.
