Sorry to bother again but do you all suggest full synthetic oil?

If I am doing my own oil changes, everything gets synthetic. Since my Escape has a "maintenance for life" contract, it gets a blend when it goes in for the oil changes, and I am okay with that, I used a blend on some of the play around cars (97 Lincoln Mark VIII, 97 Mercury Cougar) as they got oil changes every 6 months as they didn't get many miles on them.

My 330k mile Grand Marquis still gets synthetic, my 2012 Fusion gets it as well. I did use conventional oil in my 1989 Cougar with 220k miles, and still did the same 5,000 intervals and it was fine.

With my Escape it gets changed when the OLM says so, which other than the first time, has been right at 10,000 miles. I am not going to go above the required services other than the transmission, I will do that myself and early, as it isn't covered in the maintenance for life.
