Not from my experience or understanding. Please cite some references. Everything I have read or heard indicates that it is a true synthetic. It's Castrol Syntec that is labeled as a "fully synthetic" but is a cracked petroleum based oil. That is not necessarily a bad thing, just different. All of the ad-hoc testing and scientific evidence I have ever seen shows that Mobil 1 is as good as, or better than, any other synthetic oil at any price. > For what it is, it may be good, but at least in the UK it is seriously > over priced. The price issue is your (collective Brittish) problem. I can buy Mobil 1 here in the US at WalMart for $19 per 5 qt bottle. That does not effect the quality of the oil. If you don't want to spend the money, then don't, but that does not make it a lesser oil. -Fred W
