Following is statement about "synthetic" fromAmsoil website:

The relates to the Base Oil or Base Stock, it and only it (theBase Stock) is synthetically made. In case of Mobil 1, it wasoriginally in 1970's PAO (Poly-alpha-olefin).

Shell also only describes the benefits of

The first shipments of Mobil 1 SAE 5W-20 "Synthesized Engine Lubricant" were TOTAL disaster,as even before they arrived to the Mobil Service Stations, they allleaked !

Q: Is Mobil 1 a fully synthetic oil?

The EXXON (Esso) company had already solved such apackaging problem years ago with their SyntheticEster Jet Engine Oil, by the use of rather expensive stainless steelcans.

It was a handful of small companies in early 1970's that developed the"First Synthetic" and while Amzoil (Yes it was Amzoil then andNOT Amsoil) was one of them it was not the ONLY or the FIRST.

Basically they are 100% Petroleum - but labeled as "synthetic" !

All PENNZOIL or QUAKER STATE Labeledproducts as well as all "synthetic" labeled lubricants sold atJiffy-Lube Fast Lubes use SHELL produced BaseOil of API Group III or API Group II+.

Someone has to PAY extra premium for the "synthetic" on the label,even if the content is not "synthetic".

Mobil Oil complained to National AdvertisingDivision of the Council of Better Business Bureaus,which in April 1999 finally ruled in CASTROL favor,specifically allowing Syntec® Motor Oil made fromSHELL XHVI slack wax stream to be sold and promoted as"synthetic".

Fischer-Tropsch synthesis over ruthenium-promoted …

A slight clue that as good as "synthetic" is really not allthat good, can be found on , when therecommended oil change interval for CASTROLSyntec® Fully Synthetic Motor Oil is: 3,000 milesor 3 months - just the same as for ordinary conventional Petroleum MotorOil.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to Fisher-Tropsh synthesis catalysts

Fischer Tropsch Synthesis - [PDF Document]

Since SAE is a non-profit organization of Engineers, it hadno desire nor financial might to involve itself in never ending lawsuits withmighty oil and chemical companies, so the simple "deletion" of allreferences to "synthetic" was perhaps the best and easiest decision.

Catalyst structure and method of fischer-tropsch synthesis:

The decision was made to go along with Europe (after all Metric isbetter), and as a result all reference to "synthetic" in respect tolubricants was deleted from ALL future SAE publications ofSAE Standards relating to Lubricants.
