How bio-synthetic is it ? If it's truly bio-synthetic, then I should be able to dilute it with rubbing alcohol.

I wonder if you use this and your vehicle burns oil if cotton candy comes out the tail pipe?

I haven't used this type of Bio Lube but I have used R.L.I. which is bio lube and it was excellent on the UOA's I ran, the only problem is that it was really expensive to get here in Ontario so I went back to Amsoil.

...On the other hand, no fuel or any energy carrier obtained from biomass through chemical conversion or thermo-chemical process can reach the yield levels of a product created by nature during millions of years. In spite of this ratio in the bio-oil production indicates that the best application for the bio-oil is as a substitute for oil by-products in the chemical and petrochemical industries...

I ran G-Oil bio-synthetic in several cars for several OCIs without any obvious bad results in two vehicles that continue to motor along with 220K and 264K miles. My "experiments" were several years ago, when G-Oil was available/nearly free after mail-in-rebate, but it was synthesized from meat renderings, I think. If Castrol is willing to put its zootiest marketing name on the bottle, it's no-doubt fine for your car. Not cheap, though---I think you can get Amsoil SS 0w-20 for that price. But I wouldn't hesitate if/when it shows up on the year-end clearance shelf at AAP, AZ, etc.
