switching back to conventional from synthetic, is this cool to do ?

im gettin tired of payin 60 bucks for a oil change, im plannin to go back to conventional oil from synthetics. ive read a bunch of stuff sayin there shouldnt be a problem whatsoever that its just a mechanics trick to get ya to spend more. im wonderin if any of you guys have done it and if so were there any special precautions you took or did you do it like every other oil change youve ever done, just drain and pour any input would be appreciated thanks

There is no precautions needed for switching back. But what brand are you using thats costing your 60$ a change. I use an OEM Honda Filter with Mobil 1 and its 31$ per oil change. And I get it done at a dealership my friend works at.

You can switch. It won't hurt anything.

You should run a motor flush if you really want to ensure nothing goes wrong.
