do you use Synthetic oil in your car?
So I just typed this in another thread and then found out it was about Syn life and not oil. I guess I stayed up way to late playing red dead Redemption last night.
So anyways I figured I would ask I would like to know how many of you do use Syn. in your car.
I love Synthetic oil. Here are some things you need to know.
#1 It is better in every way and to be honest I don't think it will ever break down regardless of what the test say.
#2 You still need to do regular oil changes. Even thought the oil protects better and last way longer you still get the same amount of dirt in it that you would with conventional oil. Dirt works like sandpaper on your cylinder walls and crank bearings.
#3 If you have a small oil leak with conventional oil you will have a big oil leak with Syn. oil.
#4 This is most important. Unless you engine specifically states to use it. ( IE lt1 motor ) DO NOT put this stuff in your engine until you have at least 30,000 miles on it.
Hope this helps. I am all for it though. I run it in everything I own even down to my little POS Subaru.
Oh One more thing. Never use Pennzoil or Quaker state in anything. They are absolutely the worst oil in the world.
