Burning, yes, but, could a synthetic prevent an engine from leaking as much? 
Clearly an MGA engine is going to leak a bit from the rear main where there 
is no seal, but do synthetics have any "swelling agent" to help seal 
elsewhere?  Thirty years ago, synth was thought to cause leakage from the 
seals, but that problem has been corrected (if it even existed).
