I thought that was pretty funny, really. My tranny went from smooth shifting to
very notchy shifting when I changed to regular oil. Then went back to synthetic
one year later after figuring out that it's suppose to have the stuff. BIG
changes in shifting. I also put some Marvel Mystery oil in the tank at the same
time (about 10 oz over three tanks). My mileage improved from about 24.5 to
about 26-28 MPG. Thinking back, I bet the synthetic oil was the major
contributor to that gain.

Man, my ass is just getting over that two quarts!
