    Valvoline website says all SYN oils come from DINO

    I thought that RP was also 100% PAO base?

    What SYN oils are 100% GP-III base?

    And if they exist, can they still be pushed to 10k like so many like to say "synthetics" can??? (meaning compared to those that also use GP-IV & V mixed into there formulas)

    Valvoline website says all SYN oils come from DINO

    Well they DO NOT tell the "layman" that their 3000 mile OCI recommendation is only for their dino and not SynPower...what a joke! The "layman" buys SYN usually to go longer OCI I would think.

    Valvoline website says all SYN oils come from DINO

    What about PAO & Esters??? MYTH - Synthetic motor oils are man-made in a laboratory. REALITY - Synthetic motor oils use crude oils extracted from the earth which go through a synthesis process and use man-made additives in the creation of a final product.

    Valvoline VR1 in street application

    Is there any reason for this in a non-flat tappet application? Do you really benefit that much from extra ZDDP if in a roller motor? Also, thought someone once said that the regular VR1 was not to be used more than 3k OCI due to less detergents? Just wondering the justification for ANYONE on...

    89 nissan z24i 4x4 oil

    I always used Castrol GTX 10w30 in my '89 2wd w/ Z24 motor. Had 181k on it when I sold it and still going strong, just be sure to adjust the valves (or have it done) once per year. But now that I know what I know, I will agree that an HDEO (like Rotella 10w30) or maybe even better, the...
