LOL you've never heard of synthetics???
You can buy synthetic brake fluid (his a higher boiling point, supposedly better for lines), power steering fluid (again, higher boiling point, better lubrication), oil, trans fluid, diff fluid, etc. Generally, I'm a synthetic fan. But the thing is in most cases (not all) you need to make sure ALL of the traditional spirits lube is out before you put in the synthetic.
As far as doing it to motors, sometimes people have issues when their vehicle has too many miles that how thin and free-flowing the synthetic is it can cause oil leaks to sprout. And once you put in synthetic, you can NOT go back to conventional oil.
I'm all for synthetics in my cars though. Just research what your putting it into first because SOME times, that particular car part you want to put it into doesn't work well w/ synthetics.
