I thought GTL with 4000 cP CCS @ -30 C had a NOACK around 2%. Perhaps what's evaporating is the solvents in the additive package? Interestingly, the Ultra Platinum has higher NOACK than the vanilla Platinum. Is it because they have the same base

I totally believe its good stuff when your trying to buy some time with something thats on its last leg. Old rototiller thats knocking, old mowers, compressors etc. Just too darn thick to use in anything like a good automobile engine.

You know, 540rat's test does raise an interesting question: If you are a chemist/tribologist, what quick bench tests can you devise that would predict how your oil performs in all the expensive official tests? (to make sure you've got it right)

yeah, 10w-30 will work for a garaged vehicle. I guess a lot of us just try to optimize (lower) start up wear when cold.

I thought BMW recently revised the interval to 100k for ATF. I've seem a couple of E90s with this recommendation. Are you sure that yours doesn't have the 100k recommendation in the manual? With that said, in light duty use, I've seen a lot of cars

As mentioned, oil filters bypass with differential pressure. This can occur when the engine is cold and the oil is viscous and it can also occur for a moment at operating temp when you go wide open throttle.
