Here is a VOA for Valvoline Professional Series Oil Additive. I bought 8 bottles of this off of eBay awhile back.

Wow I like that a LOT. I might look for some of it myself now.

Looks promising. Even the viscosity is SAE 30 at 100C, instead of being syrup like many additives.

I wonder what kind of Moly it has - I am cautious about MOS2, but would like soluble moly.

VSOT used soluble moly (I could tell by the color) so I expect this product does too.

I haven't been able to find anymore. I emailed Valvoline though and asked if it was still produced and sold I can let you know the answer if they write back.

Wow, thanks for that. Love the moly number on that!

Wish it had a bit more Zn/Ph, but hey, everyone's scared of the API limits......LOL!

Interesting that Ashland has realy 'gotten into' Na additives - all their oils use Na detergents, and now thier oil treatments do, too!

Zinc is 691. If someone were to use lets say RTS 5W40 which has about 1100 PPM zinc (correct me if I'm wrong), wouldn't that decrease the overall Zinc. I have several 32oz bottles of this stuff.

Correct, the overall PPM of zinc would decrease for the oil/additive mix. To get the final PPM, use:

(%oil x zinc PPM of oil) + (%additive x zinc PPM of additive)

So, if RTS is ~1100 PPM zinc and you mix 4 quarts of it with 1 quart of this additive (~700 PPM zinc) you'd get:

(.8 x 1100) + (.2 x 700) = 1020 PPM

Nice, gib. Likewise, if the oil had no moly and 4 quarts were mixed with 1 qt. of this additive, the moly concentration would be: (.8 x 0) + (.2 x 1900) = 380 PPM.

From what I have been told and read Moly is anti wear also so it would seem that an increase in that would offset the little drop in ZDDP. That is of course not talking about oil chemistry.
