Not the same tired oil question

I'm using Valvoline extreme blue in my truck now, I've used Rotella syn before, in the last two oil changes, and used MC 10-30 dino for the first 2 or 3 oil changes. My truck now leaks oil, and I don't think it started until I went over to the Valvoline. Anybody else have any issues with oil leaks and syn oil? I'm debating on going back to MC 10-30 dino, because I don't like oil leaks, and its cheaper . My neighbor had an 07 with 191k on it, used 15-40 dino of some brand, don't know which, and it was bone dry till the day he got rid of it

I like the sun, and the how it seemed to quiet the engine down, and make cold starts easier, but the oil leaks piss me off in a 50k truck
