Yes I use synthetic oil
No I do not use synthetic oil
Hell, I don't even know where the oil cap is
Synthetic in cases and conventional oil for internal combustion, land or sea.
I never run out of protection or money this way and I have excellent success.

I dont use it in everything due to cost.. But synthetic is hands down better than fossil !
Synthetic in motors, drives, transmissions, etc.
Amsoil all the way!!!!
Synthetic oil is used by NASA, military, racing, aircraft, etc.
The military switched to synthetics because their vehicles are in storage for long periods of time and the synthetics protect during storage better as the flim strength is retained for longer periods of time...plus doing frequent oil changes while in battle is rough.Originally Posted by white scarab

I've been running Brad Penn oil in my 750 hp blower motors strictly because my engine builder recommended it. When running fresh oil (I change oil every 10 hrs) my oil pressure would be 50 psi at 4000 rpm, oil temp 220 degrees. after the oil had 7-8 hrs of hard running, my oil pressure would drop when the oil got hotter than 200 degrees. I'm sure the oil was breaking down as when I let it cool, the oil pressure would return to normal. I've not had the oil tested but I'm pretty sure this oil was all done at 10 hrs.
From reading Hydro's posts on Mobile 1, I decided to switch. I'm now running M1 15-50 and I'm just plain floored at the dramatic difference in oil pressure when oil temps rise. I just took a half hour run and held oil temps at 220 degrees, the Mobile one was a full 20 psi more oil pressure than what I was running before. Even at 230 degrees (before the cooler) oil pressure held steady at 70 psi @4000 rpm.
Mobile 1 rocks!!!!

V-Twin really rocks
I was going to try the v-twin but I could not find it anywhere .
I'll try to order some for the next oil change.
How does M-1 handle fuel dilution?
I'm not qualified to answer that in any meaningful terms, however, M-1 has an unparalleled record with it's synthetic oils in racing applications, also v-twin is made for Harley's which are very bad about contaminating the oil with fuel, then overheating it.Originally Posted by Biggus
I just bought 3 cases of V-twin (6 qts per case) 49.00/case.
Anyone bought the v-twin for less than 8 bucks/qt?
