Hi I have a 1985 Saab 90 carb model which I guess is the same 8v in an early 900. I was about to do an oil change and have been using fully synthetic 5w 30 in my later 16v 900s but a friend of mine with a Saab 99 told me to use just mineral oil in my 90 and not to use synthetic ? what’s the Recommendations here ? Any advice is greatly appreciated

Either way? Unless you've got an M5 or RS3 or something else truly fancy, it likely doesn't matter.

I use synthetic everywhere because it's what I have. If you've got non-synthetic laying around, there's zero reason not to use it.

Ok - that’s the way I would go - I think my mate has just used to using what he’s using and that’s where is advice came from .
