If you need it for leaking seals, lower zddp and p will not effect that at all. Seal swell will still do its job. I guess if you believe you need higher zddp, the good news for you is that there are still higher Zink choices available. I doubt its

I usually do 5000miles or once a year on regular oil. I think all of fords 5w20 is a semi-syn, maybe that's why they say its ok for 10k? I would not do 10k on a turbo motor with a semi-syn but that's just me.

That still doesn't address my question about the Starburst increasing sales. Some of us who've had the most luck with HM oils have done so when they weren't ILSAC certified. Now, Defy is simply interchangeable with QSGB, but costing more.
