Re: Real 100% Synthetic oils (GShyneDM)

According to Mobil1's website:<br>"Mobil 1 is a fully synthetic motor oil for automotive engines. "<p>I thought the deal over this was that a court or some organization ruled or stated that the manufacturers could use the term "fully synthetic" when they actually were the hybrid/semi synthetic oils. <p>If anyone has links to any of the car mags. or sites discussing this please post the links, I'd like to get clear on this subject.<p>I found this link and I'm still reading: <A HREF="http://www.autospeed.com/A_0875/page1.html?src=suggestions" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autospeed.com/A_0875/page1.html?src=suggestions</A><br>

Actually, from what I have read on other forums. The Mobil1 fully synthetic is actually a hybrid. The only oil I know that is tryly synthetic is Amsoil. That'll cost you though.
