"Dino Oil?" (what is it?)

  1. S'cuse my ignorance, but whenever I surf these various forums on motor oil, they talk about "dino oil," but don't define the term. Is this just regular "parafin based" motor oil or is it a another name for synthetic blend? :shrug:
  2. I believe that "Dino oil" refers to good old fashioned dead dinosaurs, as opposed to synthetic.

    :flag: :nice:
  3. It is just what people call regular parafin based oil, not a synthetic or blend. Dino is short for dinasour.
  4. Correct :)

    I like the ford motorcraft oil... its a synthetic blend, dino and sythetic lubs....
