agreeing and disagreeing at the same time. I love the internet. My point is there are other parts of a vehicle that "deserve" a switch to synthetic more than the power steering system. Above I saw a 0.02 hp gain. Thats 0.xxx mpg gain in theory. Push your car out of the driveway every day before work and you will get 0.xxx mpg gain. How many zeros off that decimal are we going to go?

I agree 100% if the HP gain were truly .02. But the values in my above example were entirely made up, just to show how the process was to be done.
