HECK I'd run that it in my cav which spece 5W-30. That looks excellent, more ZDDP and Boron than PP. Very nice.

You talking the HM 10w-30?

With all the glowing talk the last several months (and more) re this oil I think that is what many are considering. shrug

This may be so but in many applications this lubricant has a very stabil viscosity over very long OCI



So Doug do you have some ideas why there is that shearing of 0W40 (as seen in many UOAs on BITOG)?

The Blackstone 100C vis of 13.36 cSt is quite a bit off the M1 PDS spec' of 14.0 cSt (used to be 14.3 in the not too distant past).
That's something to keep in mind when reviewing UOAs from this lab particularly when assessing how shear prone M1 0W-40 is reported to be.

So no one disputes my thought that M1 HM 10w-30 may be a better oil then the 0w-40? 10w should have less vii given the density difference = more shear stability.

Instead of going thicker than spec'in a modest power car like the Cavalier, especially in the winter, check out the Toyota 0W-20 VOA that's just been posted. It has the same Phos and Boron as M1 plus a killer amount of Moly.

Except that even at the end of a long OCI the 0W-40 will still have a higher VII and a higher 100C vis if that's what you need.

Correction, I meant to say 0W-40 will have a higher viscosity index (VI).

I saw that difference too, I'm wondering if it really is that visco or if there is some margin of error in the analysis. /me thinks of sending a sample off to another lab for a second opinion.

I do. In fact I think that's a ridiculous conclusion, honestly.

This seems to happen far too often. I know VOA/UOA are relatively inexpensive via Blackstone but having to send out a sample to verify a sketchy result does add up. It seems the adage "you get what you pay for" does apply to oil analyses. smirk

So, with the M1 10w-30 HM: GF2/3 ACEA A3/B3/4, much less vii to clog up the rings, a true full synthetic basestock, no shearing through the oci, more % EP agents, lower pour point(-65f), no excessive Ca required which is competitive with the antiwear adds, same HTHS for piston stability, slightly lower viscosity for less windage ... whats so ridiculous about that? its like the classic Amsoil ATM on your shelf at wallmart.
