    82 diesel, any synthetic oil better than another?

    Have used Mobil 1 for years but am seeing synthetic oil on the shelves now from a number of other brands.

    Any one actually better or worse than another? Anything to watch out for in choosing? Any weights/multi weights to stay away from?

    Am driving a 1.9 Diesel from a newer German model so if there are difference in oil requirements it would be nice to know.

    I read a few weeks ago that there are some synthetic oils that are not 100% synthetic. The good old government has made some leeway as to what is synthetic. If you want 100% do some reading on the subject. There were very few that were 100% Syn.
