How is todays Formula Shell conventional oil? I notice it on sale from time to time at a local store and I am thinking about switching to it. My dad ran it years ago but I have now idea on if the new stuff is any good?

No, its a lot closer to QSGB IMO but still not identical from what I've been able to tell from UOA/VOA's.
