Germanic oil changes

The reason I said that is from the experience of one of my engineers who
was on a three year assignment to Ramstein.  While there he bought a new
Honda (?!?) for his wife and was told that he _must_ use a synthetic for
his oil changes.  Sounded strange to me but was told it was for pollution
reduction due to the longer oil drain intervals of synthetics. Due to easy
access I suggested that he just get Mobil 1 from the exchange.
