No, it's not synthetic - old Fiats are one of those cars for which, according to the CW of Italian car mechanics and most everybody else I've ever heard, synthetic oil is not recommended. Semi-synth Ok, though. Besides, it leaks enough oil as it is! I don't think there was a single Spider engine ever made that did not leak oil from the cam cover gaskets into the valley and spark plug wells.
