In the case of small engines with splash-plate lubrication rather than
an oil pump, the synthetic oils are NOT generally suitable for them. The
better flow characteristics of the synthetics mean the splash plate cannot
pick up enough oil.
This is why Royal Purple, for instance, makes a special synthetic oil
that is designed to be extra-sticky, for small engines.
