I find that SYNTHETIC ends up costing less than conventional, when you look at things in long term approach.
Less failure due to over heating the oil= less money spent at the machine shop.
Longer intervals= less money spent on oil.
When to Choose a Synthetic
When designing a lubrication program, I use a very simple set of rules to know when to choose a synthetic for an application. They are as follows:
•when equipment-performance demands exceed the capabilities of mineral-based fluid,
•when synthetic properties can become problem-solvers,
•when life-cycle cost savings can be realized, or
•when safety and environmental issues can be enhanced
With the appropriate management strategy, a change to a high-performance product can actually cost considerably less than the equivalent mineral oil product type. Outside of these considerations, somewhere around 165 degrees F represents the point at which you probably should begin to consider the use of synthetics for the sake of lubricant longevity, if not for the sake of reliability.
A 532 BBF is not a cheap engine to build, I know I have a new one waiting to be installed.
I sure in the hell wont be putting some product that has no actual testing and comparison with other products that are comparable.
