I have always known synthetic oil uses petrolium. Syn oil contains the best petrolium moniculs that are normally in small quanities in dino oil. It must be separated and therefore takes more petro base to produce. It is far superior than dino oils.

Hey some great new stuff on diesel additives

Hey guys!
I know I haven't posted in years but I plan to more often as my other place deletes all posts after three years and locks them after a year.

I got this link from another friend who participates on Diesel place.

They had a lab do controlled tests on the same plain dry diesel with no additives to expressly find if any were actually increasing the lubricity of the Diesel fuel which makes all the difference in the world to our engine's lifespan.

This is on a forum, not commercial, and with nothing for sale.

Dodge Owner,
Most of your post was in the first page. Amsoil also does not have the SAE seal of approval stamped on all of their products because they use the market price to determine which company to buy their base oils from. Thus every time they changed base stock or an ingredient they would have to retest at their expense and they aren't doing the testing.

Lug Nut,
You might want to read the thread from the beginning because dino oil may be used by some brands claiming synthetic oils when all they are doing is adding one extra refining step to group 2 oil to create what they call Group III synthetics. You can read the whole thread for the answers and nothing has changed except the folks seem to believe the hype.
