what about the saying of once you go fully synthetic you cant go back cause youll ruin your oil seals er something, i dont know if its true. i ran spectro sythentic blend for a bit in my gix and now use valvoline conventional 10w-40 MC oil. i always used to run golden sprectro in my 550 but latly the same with valvoline. i always run mobil synthetic in my turbocharged car and never anything else.

I can only approach the switching "theory" based on my auto experience. We had a car that was full-synthetic for quite a while and developed a leak. On advice from a grease-monkey friend I switched back to dino oil and the weeping stopped altogether. So if there was some issue with the gaskets, I'd have seen a worse leak I'd expect and that was not the case.

Traded the car about 5k miles later though, so it wasn't a long-life test. But the short experience was enough for me to ignore the theory.

Oh, wait, my Kawi was full synthetic and I've switched it to Rotella 15-40. No issues whatsoever yet and I've at least doubled the mileage on it. Think its at 10k now.....
