With all due respect Mr. Brian, guru of the 930... I was under the "educated" impression that it had to do with the detergents in the synthetic oil that cleaned out the "crap" that the dino oil left behind. It is this "crap" that gummed up different seals and helped them not to leak. Have I been wrong all of these years???
I speak from a position of changing the oil to Mobil 1 within a week of every car purchase I have ever made regardless of what was in the crankcase (or oil tank) prior to me taking over the title. Never had any real concerning issues doing this... Light drips on the garage floor are the least of my concerns.
(the comment about Brian being a guru was serious... not tongue in cheek. I run his parts on my cars in case anyone questioned that sentiment)
