Myth: Synthetic motor oils are man-made in a laboratory.

Reality: Synthetic motor oils use crude oils extracted from the earth which go through a synthesis process and use man-made additives in the creation of a final product.

Myth: Synthetic oils are too thin, creating blow-by and oil burn-off in older cars.

Reality: Just like conventional motor oil, synthetic oils have a specific viscosity grade. However, synthetic motor oil contains extra lubrication additives to make the oil stronger and provide higher heat dissipation. Synthetic oils do not affect seals and will not be the cause of blow-by or oil burn off in an older engine.

Myth: Once your engine gets a taste of synthetic motor oil, there's no going back to conventional oil.

Reality: Synthetic and conventional oils are compatible - It is not harmful if you decide to switch.

Myth: There is not any real difference between conventional and synthetic motor oil.

Reality: There are not any real differences in the basestocks used to make synthetic and conventional oils, but there are differences in the additives and process used to make the final products.

Myth: Synthetic motor oil will ruin the seals in older vehicles and cause leaks.

Reality: Synthetic motor oil does not cause leaks. It is 100% compatible with all automotive seal and gasket materials.

Royal purple is synthetic. If you have a decent amount of miles, guessing 40k+, you shouldn't go synthetic for risk of oil leaks is what I think. I don't drive hard so I just use conventional oil anyway. I change more frequently though. Synthetic can go up to 10k miles per oil change with a filter change at 5k.
Well this info is what I recollect from years ago. Perhaps things have changed because I haven't kept up since I don't use it.
The filter from RP said 12k miles. I plan on doing annual oil changes with the RP oil + filter.

Good deal. I hate how all these oil deals are always for 5 quarts though. That's not enough for any of my cars.

So this doesn't confuse anybody who doesn't know any better, synthetic oil doesn't cause oil leaks. If anything, there was already a leak that should probably be addressed anyway. The sludge of the conventional oil was blocking it up.

And yes, synthetic can be run for much longer than dino oil.

Can I use this synthetic oil on my 2003 Lexus with 100k miles? It has some very light valve stem oil leak. Will this cause more leak? TIA

Pretty good deal. I'm a Mobil 1 user myself, but will recognize a good deal when I see one. These 5qt deals are pretty laughable, though. laugh out loud

TU and repped.

If you start with synthetic oil, you should continue and never look back. It's not a good practice to switch back and forth. This oil is great for any car. I would address the leak as oil will not fix it for you. and Yes, use Royal Purple if you have a chance vs Mobil 1 or Castrol. (I am only talking about full synthetic oils)

Your info is still good! Props on the filter change at 5k - this will make the biggest difference.
