Re: Anyone heard of "MotorKote" wear protector??
I've heard of the test before too, used in tests of different products...
But I think the premise is slightly skewed and a little too simplistic. Lubricity is important, but is not the only measureable characteristic of good oil. Synthetics still pour better in cold weather and can handle higher heat extremes. And the main reason synthetics (true synthetics) cost more than dino is that they're made from more expensive components, like additives and other things I'm not familiar enough with to explain intelligently. That doesn't mean you "need" them, but they are still better... The survey also doesn't seem all that objective by the time you get to the end, where they're finally coming around to advertising the "one" additive that "does work."
