While I know it isn't licensed for dexos 1

i bought napa syn 5w20 yesterday and sure enough it says dexos 1 on the bottle...


Must be on the 5W-20 because I have the 5W-30 and can't find it anywhere on the bottle.

you're right. all of the 5w30 i have seen is still old stock from like 2008...all i saw in the 5w30 was sm, gf-4


I got 14 quarts, 8 are SN and 6 are SM. The SN doesn't even have Dexros 1 on the 5W-30 bottle.

It's strange to hear that the 5w20 says dexos when dexos1 is a 5w30 oil...Well...do you guys think this Napa syn would do well in a Cruze turbo?

The price I said is what the NAPA sold me a case for as they gave me a "workplace discount".

I have tech papers from Valvoline on the Napa syns, as well as some of the other Valvoline oils. Does anybody know how to post the .pdf's, I can put them in the VOA sections.
