The people at Advance Auto Parts don't know ****! Today's synthetic oils are fully compatible with any conventional motor oil. If you want to switch, then just use synthetic the next time you change your oil.

PW01 is correct. Even the manufacturers web site says that. It meets the OEM spec for oil, so use it whenever.

i was using syntec in my 97 F150 for a long time but i recently switched to Royal Purple and i noticed a difference in my power and a slight increase in my MPG, its a little more expensive ( i think like .50 cents more then syntec per quart ) and its worth the little extra money.
