"Synthetic oils were originally developed more than 50 years ago and became widely used in jet engines. Less than -120 F ambient temperatures, 60000 shaft rpm, and 500 +F exhaust temperatures proved too much for conventional oils. Synthetics were created specifically to withstand these harsh conditions and to date every jet engine in the world uses synthetic lubricants. Amsoil introduced the first synthetic oil for automotive use in 1972 and have continued to be at the leading edge of development ever since. Mobil 1, undoubtedly the most recognized name in synthetics, was introduced in 1976. Many companies have jumped on the bandwagon and have since released synthetic lubricants for automotive use and all are becoming increasingly popular for their superior lubricating properties, superior ability to flow at cold temperatures, and their ability to withstand high temperatures for extended periods of time." cont- http://www.bimmerzone.com/category/Tip_and_Tricks_Motor_Oil.html
