The biggest difference will be the cost to you.
That being said; Real testing ( Mobil 1 vs Super Permalube -Amoco regular motor oil) measured about a 1/2 % increase in mpg for the synthetic. Tests were for many thousand miles on AZ test track ,late 70's.

My old neighbor worked at the GM proving grounds in queen creek az. and in all there test vehicles they ran Mobile 1 full syn. from death valley to the rockies in colorado. thats the only oil they used in every test vehicle
nope wont help a bit the only help yo will get is not changing your oil every 3000 miles but rather 5000+ if you do go synthetic oil i highly suggest Valvoline Syn Power one of the best...the throttle response is amazing my buddies who drive Vettes and WS6 recommended it to me and damn its the best well worth the price too
If there's any mileage advantage, I haven't seen it. But it may just be me. My reason for using mobil1 synthetic is better/faster lubrication and the fact that it doesn't gum up like conventional oil does, so your engine stays cleaner. Although synthetic is proven best, any good motor oil will do the job so long as it, and the filter, are changed often enough.
"Synthetic" isn't always synthetic. I understand that Castrol actually refined mineral oil but called it synthetic, and was taken before the Federal Trade Commission which ruled that there is not a legal standard for synthetic oil, and Castrol won. I have recently stumbled across Brad Penn Oil which is made from real Pennsylvania Crude grade oil, from wells in PA, WV, OH and NY. Brad Penn is made by American Refining Group in Bradford, Pennsylvania. It is more expensive than the cheaper synthetics, but it may be better. You won't find it in discount auto supply houses -- you have to find a distributor and order it. Brad Penn has been found to hold up very well to extreme blow by from blown dragster engines as well as to coolant leaks in stock cars and has saved engines in these circumstances. Has anyone run Brad Penn in a Titan, and if so, what are the results? I am currently running NAPA synthetic in my Titan which I am told is made by Valvoline at 5,000 mile intervals.
