LOL, you have a lot to learn about advertising and implicature.
Here's what they said in their printed promotional materials:
Q: Is Mobil 1 a fully synthetic oil?
Yes, it�s 100% synthetic. The base stocks used in blending Mobil 1 are
all "chemically constructed" instead of being simply segregated out of
crude oil like conventional mineral oils.
Q: Then why does it say it contains a petroleum carrier for additives?
All motor oils contain additives that provide extra protection against
wear, corrosion and engine deposits. These additives are usually high
molecular weight materials � sometimes even solids. Conventional carrier
oil is used to make these additives soluble. All motor oils will contain
some of this carrier oil, usually only amounting to a small percentage
of the finished product.
