Re: stupid oil question

Some people will say no (old way of thinking), but truth is you'll be fine switching.

X2. If you are concerned, use synthetic blend for 2 cylces, then go to full synthetic if everything appears normal.
You can always go back to dino oil. If you perform regular oil changes (every 5-6K or less), the filter is probably a more important replacement than the type of oil.
