I read something along those lines recently from pgreenstv(sp). I'm switching to mobil 1 next change or if i can afford it some Redline 5w40.
People actually listen to what I say?
I'll have to be more careful in the future.
What I said was that Mobil 1, and Amsoil are made from Group IV (PAO) base stock which is a true chemically engineered synthetic motor oil. Most oils claiming to be full synthetics are in fact made from Group III (severely hydrocracked dino juice) base stocks with a little Group IV or Group V (Polyol Ester) thrown in for the detergent properties inherent to those oils. I believe that Redline is the best oil out there but at $45.95/gallon too high for most of us to consider.
At less than $20/gallon T6 is a great budget alternative but I will continue to use Amsoil 5w40.
