Made from animal fat or something but it is fully synthetic approved for race cars. Made in America to. Oil changes cost a ton kinda hard to pass up on a free one.

Printed - will purchase a bottle next week and submit rebate. I use all Mobil 1 Syn Oil for the RDX, so this one will be used for the prius!

Thanks

No need to do my own changes yet (free maintenance), but when I do, I'd probably use BMW OEM oils (or Euro Castrol)
