[Healeys] Does synthetic oil leak more?

I am not a leak expert, but I find this hard to understand. For there to be a leak there has to be a hole. Is it because the synthetic oil molecules are smaller than the non-synthetic oil molecules? Given that the "holes" come in different sizes this seems illogical. Is it because the synthetic oil is more slippery? How is that measured? How much more slippery is it? Gary Hodson

The biggest difference you will notice with synthetic gear oils is they leak
more than non-synthetic.
