    My friend just bought a used car from this guy and was wondering if the rumors were true or not that once you change it to synthetic you cant go back. Me personally i would keep synthetic in it. Thats what i always have run in my engines. But this guy is cheap and doesnt want to spend the extra money!! Any ideas???

    i heard with the way both are now, there isnt a problem switching back which is why i am running it and kinda seeing what happens with that or whatever. i dont know if ill switch back but a selling point was that i could. but thats what someone said, who heard it from someone, who also read it online somewhere (probably) so someone might chime in who knows better
