There was a thread on this just some days ago, and it's a recurring thread.

The '92 must use Pentosin 11S.  The 11S is synthetic vs. mineral like the 7.1,
and has higher ratings.  11S can be used in lieu of 7.1 in all applications,
but cars that came with 11S should not use 7.1.  The switchover was around
1989 or so.
