BOTTOM LINE..............IT'S A SECRET!! GEE---WHO KNEW??

I'm sure if you kept digging you could prove that synlube is used,Trajan.


Where does it say Synlube? It says Mil-Spec. The military has people bid they set the specs, not the oil company. Still no mention of "Synlube". I'd think Uncle Sam would do business with a company that has an address and license. Not from two con-artists with a lousy web-site.

Anything the military buys has what is called Mil-spec (military specifications) they put out for bid for a supplier that meets or exceeds those specs, the oil is then put in containers that just says motor oil mil-spec such and such, thats the way it's done with everything from ash trays to tampons.

Safety Kleen recycles and sells recycled oil. Is Synlube part of Safety Kleen?

Then another article mentions the SAE and Synthetic 5W40 oil in trucks going 100K. No word of Synlube. Besides Synlube is 5W50 IIRC.

Maybe you can highlite Synlube being mentioned in any of those articles Kirk. My eyes are tired.

Remember Kirk just because you say so, and it is on the internet doesn't make it a fact. Those links are generalizations at best. Synlube not mentioned once.

Besides how about that business address and copy of the license from Costello/Miro?
