Default OK Folks, Enlighten Me!!!!!!!!!!!

My friend and I were discussing oil the other day and we both are sold on Synthetic Oil.

I read everything I can on these forums about oil and I mentioned the word "dino" oil to him. I have seen this term used a lot.

He asked me what that meant. He asked if this is a "brand" of oil. Not trying to look too ignorant, I told him I assumed it was any "non-synthetic oil".

Am I correct on this?

Help me out folks.

You are correct, Dino is organic oil

You are correct. The "old school" conventional oil is referred to as dino oil sometimes.

"Dino" is not a Durand of oiil. It is a reference to non-synthetic oils.
