I thought T6 was full synthetic

so what is the main difference from a "true" synthetic and a "full" synthetic?

I absolutely hate the T6.

I run Schaeffers 9000 normally. But decided to try the t6. Rotella is worthless in a 6.0

A true full synthetic is not petroleum based.

Rotella T6 is dino oil but since its hydrocracked so much they can call it a synthetic because of a court battle
