read in some mag the other day that you should not use friction modified oils when running in an engine but they should be used after the first oil change.

Cheers.

Penrite make natural, semi synthetic and fully synthetic based oils.

Whether the oil is a natural or a synthetic base does not define how much friction modifiers it may contains :)
