What makes a Sunthetic different from a Synthetic? Infused with the power of the Sun? Fusion Molecules?

When do the W's go into the negatives? Less than 6000cP at -50, -15w8?

A sunthetic is basically a synthetic that has the beauty of synthetics minus the bronzer additives aka "tan in a can". I stopped by Walmart on the way home and bought some Coppertone 0W20 (spf 100+) for the Accord. Supposedly a pao and not a non-grp III pseudo synth.

automakers worldwide are moving towards ever thinner viscosity grades to support achieving higher mandated fuel economy requirements.

I think you had better check again. Everyone knows Coppertone 0W20 only has a 50 spf.

Advertorial...nothing really of a technical bent, and the usual "same sized" molecule stuff that comes in advertorials.
