RE:Curiosity.....hi mileage..(+oil)

Well, here's some anecdotal information for you all:

2 cars ago: 1984 Rabbit Diesel, dino juice 20-50 Castrol, Mobil 15-50 when
I felt like it, got rid of car with 243K miles..engine ran great
     FRAM filters always, changed every 4-5K miles

1 car ago: 1987 Audi 5000s, dino juice 20-50 Castrol Spring, Summer, Fall,
changed every 4K, Mobil 1 15-50 in Winter changed every 5K-6K
     FRAM filters always, unloaded car at 240K+, engine ran same as it did
when I got it at 70K, ran Slick 50 snake oil every 50K for grins.

Current Car: 1990 90Q20v, Staight Mobil 1 15w-50 all the time, change every
4-6K miles, Mahle Filters always, no snake oil

If the current 20v makes it to 500K miles I may perform the "ice cream and
farmer test"

What does all the above mean?
Damned if I know....(*but at least I admit it)
