In case you forgot, I've already read it.
From your synlube lube-4-life/// RESULTS ARE HERE thread at BITOG. That long thread which showed none. Just observations.
In bright yellow letters, it says "The first oil you do NOT change." (As an aside, gotta love their Nationwide gas Price guide. So far off....)
So anyway, if this is an oil I do not change, why does the "warranty" say I have to change it every 50K miles?
And my second post on the subject.
TO KEEP THIS WARRANTY VALID, YOU MUST COMPLY WITH ALL OF THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS
9.) You must replace the SynLube™ lubricants regularly:
Engine: every 50,000 miles or every 5 years*
Automatic Transmission** every: 30,000 miles or every 3 years
Manual Transmission every: 100,000 miles*
Differential(s) or Rear End every: 100,000 miles*
* this requirement may be waived by SynLube if oil sample is provided for oil analysis at this mileage interval
Can you show where it says the word option? The phrase "you have the option."
May be waived means it's up to them.
(You were saying....)
What I outlined in red in my post #2 of this thread....., well, read it again.)
And this synlube site also boasts of a RX-7 with no oil consumption........
Trajen, It DOES NOT say you have to change. It would be determined by an UOA done by synlube,which is what they meant by their discretion. The oil would be drained,..only if needed,.. and sent back to synlube for full credit applied to new synlube and shipped free back to the user. Repeat again at 50k again.
I don't know what else you could ask for,...then again,...knowing you,...the moon!!
