Re: Valvoline Synthetic (28 FSP_SM)

I think that's true, although I don't understand it completely. It has something to do with the fact that any rubber components that have previously interacted with glycol based fluids (regular dot3 & dot4) will then react poorly with the new synthetic fluid. The rubber will soften and swell. We may need a chemist to explain it.
