Is the factory oil a syn blend?

Been reading about this. Does the factory put a synthetic blend in when it builds the truck?

Any reason to use the same when changing the oil or is it better to go to full synthetic? Yeah I know there are about 10,000 threads on this.

no, it is not
the only cars that come with "special" oil in them from the factory are ones with VVEL like the 370z. they have ester oil which is much more expensive. the GTR comes with mobil 1 synth, though it's a special blend for the GTR (supposedly). our trucks come with regular oil. it may have a few extra ingredients for break in miles but not much of a change
^^ exactly
then i recommend following the instructions of a proper course of action in zoomzoom's avatar then :thumbsup:
