Recently saw this for the first time in my area at WalMart. Couldn't find a recent VOA so here it is:

Thank you!

Is this the Full Synthetic in the Silver bottle or the Semi-Synthetic in the Red bottle?

Full synthetic in the silver bottle.

Red bottle has been readily available, this silver bottle has been rare which is why I thought I'd do a VOA while I had the chance.

Thanks for posting. I have considered this for my Saturn, as it just recently started popping up at Walmarts in my area. Looks like a good oil!

The 10W30 flavor has an outstanding NOACK number of 6.3%. Just one of the higlights if NOACK floats your boat.

Thank-you for a VOA of MaxLife Red Bottle full synthetic.

For comparison, here's a VOA of a competitor - Mobil 1 5W-30 High Mileage:

Thank you for posting this. I hope my local Wally World starts carrying it, like the local PepBoys have...
