I was wondering what base stock is the synthetic for nextgen

like I know Royal Purple uses a higher quality base stock then say Mobil 1,

Sorta like the lawsuit Castrol and Mobil 1 had years ago.

So what base stock is NextGen is its a base Stock III or IV or V

I think Royal Purple is IV or V

not sure, but my question is what is Valvoline NextGen Synthetic ????

Thank you.

Nextgen Maxlife is mostly a group III base, RP is a mix of III, IV and V AFAIK.

Why are you so concerned about the base oil type? It does not solely determine how well an oil will perform since there are too many other variables in a oil blend that factor in.

One question I always have is whether non NextGen has any rerefined base stock? Actually more like whether any other oil from any other brand that isn't marked as rerefined / recycled has any rerefined base stock in it?

Why does it appear that NextGen is being phased out? I like it, and given the same price, I'd run it over 'standard' Valvoline, really just because. Is there any costs or legal reasoning you couldn't start using the same formula in regular Valvoline oils, and if it's a marketing perception thing, just use it without labeling it as such?

So . . .
Does anyone know for sure if NextGen is being phased out?

Within the past couple weeks I have seen it on clearance at AutoZone, Walmart, and Meijer.
