Using Synthetic Oil in a 356


Vehicle Information: Model: 356; Year: 51-64; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): stock; Total Mileage: NA;

On the 356 talk discussion list someone asked about using synthetic oil in his 356. One suggestion was to use what the Porsche engineers specified and since synthetic wasn't widely available back in the 50s and early 60s his suggestion was to use what was specified in the owners manual. I don't have an owners manual, but to my thinking, the oil is dramatically improved over what was available 35-50 years ago. I use synthetic in my 911 and when I find the right 356 I hope to use synthetic in it but I wonder what the engineers would have specified if they could include synthetic in their choices?
