And I was starting to believe you.

Don't believe in me, I am not your God. Recognize and trust in proven facts! I don't give a damn if you run dino or synthetic in your engine. Most of the folks on this board are here because they have little to no education and they call themselves "professional" because they have a ZTR! Understand that lawn mowing is not a "profession". You might make 10 million dollars a year mowing lawns, but that only makes you a rich lawn mower. Clear your mind! The economy has been great during the last 15 years (stopped in March, 2000). The mowing crews expanded all over the country during this period because of the great economy. Now, the economy has tanked. It may go down for the next 10, 15 or 20 years!

The pickup trucks with trailers carrying L&G equipment are going downhill fast.

Break In w/synthetic?

I did use conventional for the initial 25 hours and then switched. The tolerances of these smaller engines aren't as tight as the Vettes, Porsches, Vipers and Aston Martins that get Mobil 1 off the line.
I included the Vette's link below in case ya think I'm blowin smoke past my rings.

Roll down to recommended lubricant and you will find Mobil 1 Synthetic.

After reading some of the responses to this thread I think we should switch our oils and coolants, no need to throw a rod.

The corvette comes factory filled with Mobil 1,so that throws the rings not seating theory out the window.You must use Mobil 1 or equivelent,it is required for warranty purposes.I usually wait 150 hrs,then switch to synthetic oil,rather than fill it new,but its yours,so do what you want with it.

Lord Flick Almighty, what about that dirt? Did you give up on
the gardenweb crowd? So explain for this crowd why one should
switch to synthetic. I am here too. Does the dirt get slicker?
Is slick50 better? Thighmaster?
I just want a good answer, even more so if you are getting
deified for touting synthetics. I will probably settle for even a poor answer. You come on to these forums acting like God's
younger brother, why would anyone switch to a synthetic oil?

Cool it guys

Start acting civil or I'll close this thread down! We are allowed opinions but keep the name calling out of this!

Reread the posting guide lines!

Are you mad because I called him Lord Flick Almighty?
Or that he started bringing his higher being into the thread and
called all of the posters here ignorant, uneducated laborers.
I cruise this forum and try to give good advice, but this guy
is the one that is out of line. Just let me know and I will be
more than glad to leave. I used to mow for a living and it is
a viable profession, other industries die for many reasons,
but grass will keep on growing.
