I haven't heard much discussion about this oil. I'm thinking about running it in my F-150? Is it good?

Usually having lots of moly is seen as an indicator of a "good" oil. Though that does not mean low moly means a bad oil (see HDEO's with barely any moly).

Very good. I've ran it 3 times in my car and I wouldn't hesitate to use it again.

Very good oil.

I'm surprised they haven't entered the synthetic market yet with full force. It's a small, but growing sector of the lube market.

I like it. Works well in my lincolns. Always comes out good on the oil sample.

BTW, ALL SM oils are good.

Check the flash point, check the shearing, this is not the oil your father used.

I have used it and its predecessors, and think it is an excellent product for the price.

Keep in mind that Havoline DS starts out at a relatively low viscosity, so if you have an engine where you prefer an xW-30 on the high end of the viscosity range then DS is not for you.

How good is Havoline DS?

It's SOOOOO GOOD that they changed the name and (just about) doubled the price.

It was the BITOG favorite sleeper oil until they started the Deposit Shield marketing campaign.
