    Use what the mfg recommends to protect your warranty. After the warranty period use your preference. Who knows, you may find that the mfg recommends synthetics.

    I'm ok with synthetic use, but I am currently running conventional lubricants in all my vehicles.

    Don't forget to take a few pics and post an entry in the "how to" section.
