With a pds like this, how important would the lack of Honda's HTO-06 or dexos1 be to turbo owners? Or is it not important at all? To my less discernable eyes, it appears to be a fine oil for a turbo/supercharged engine.

$25.17 + 8.25% tax = $27.25 out the door

Family Farm and Home carries Mag-1 synthetic in my area and they regularly put it on sale for $3.99 a quart I believe. Maybe slightly less. I've used this oil in a couple of my cars and they ran fine on it. They have a lot of grades too from 0w20 up to 5w40 (and everything in between) Once I work through my stash of PU and Amsoil that I got on sale, I would use Mag-1 without hesitation.

How do them specs compare to the Top Synthetic Oils???



Since XOM, SOPUS, BP and Ashland won't give us this level of detail across the board, we don't know.
No mention in this information of "superior basestocks" or "made from natural gas!" or "with XXX technology", just pure information.
Kudos to WPP and rasberries to the blenders of M1/MSS, PP/Ultra, Edge and Synpower.

I continue to be impressed with this oil. It has far exceeded my expectations. The engine smoothness is uncanny. I'm at the point now that if Walmart was to switch suppliers, I'd seriously consider mail ordering MAG1 oil from Warren.

I have a sample of the Warren made Meijer Syn 5w20 that i'm Currently Running in for a VOA(since i couldn't find one on here, or PQIA- They do have a Meijer Conv, but that was back in SM days).

will be interesting to see how close the 2 are.
(if i ever hear back from them... today is the 18th, mailed it on the 7th... black stone is only an hour drive from me...should i take 'em there in person in the future??)

Hopefully your sample got to Blackstone. In the past ( as recently as one year ago ) I've had samples that never made it to the lab. I now wait until I can get to the post office and send the sample in a package and pay for "priority" with tracking.

Blackstone tested my first nine samples the same day they received them and the tenth sample it took four days after receiving sample. It seems if they had your kit they'd have reported to you by now.

My belief is that some postal worker (in each case) considered my kit as "suspicious" and it was tossed in a dumpster. shrug I don't know but it's infuriating to lose the money spent and the info that was never gleaned.

motorguy222 recently pointed out that Warren Distribution, and Warren oil/ Warren UniLube are different companies.

www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/3423090/Re:_Wpp_and_WPP...#Post3416726

Meijer oil, such as the one i'm currently using, (and posted the above VOA link,) are Warren-Unilube(per MSDS), label on back of Bottle says "Packaged By Warren Oil Company, inc., Dunn, NC 28334"

therefore NOT related to this supertech. sorry for the any confusion.

This oil has to be annoying for othe in the oil industry.that line that mention viscosity at 150 (astm d5481)this alone makes a huge difference .oil industry usually try to stay away from the d5481 .as temperature rise oil flaw pop up

Wow.. this is actually kinda funny, considering some of the other threads on this subject.
