I agree, synthetic automotive oils are far more than adequate for the task. I've always wondered why those manufacturers don't jump in on the profit such products offer. Where else are you gonna find a market that'll buy the same product that they can take off of the automotive care shelf for 24-40 bucks per gallon for 150-450 bucks per gallon in those little "tacticool" bottles?
