Hmm the website's technical specifications (PDF file) says that Pro blend is a synthetic fortified motor oil.

Whereas, for the Dura blend it says it is a blend of premium synthetic and conventional base oils with additive technology.

Doesn't that make them both synthetic?? - confused

I was convinced they're both 'blended' mineral/synthetic oils.

But i'll stand corrected.

Both have stuff all details web wide, to me... its not on my to buy list.
