I had posted this on the other forum since I was interested in using this in my Jeep, but thought it could also be of interest here. This is a relatively new product from Valvoline that looks to be aimed directly at T5. Napa has it on sale for $11.99 a jug right now.

Valvoline kindly send me a PDS as it's not up on the web yet.



Good to see another strong contender in the 10w30 HDEO category!

Thanks for the info KC! This looks like a great oil, and considering the low wear numbers from Valvoline in the Jeep 4.0, I'll definitely have to try this oil. thumbsup

I cant find a VOA for this, and only one UOA.
I would try this in my 4.0's.....

Interesting. I used to run VPBC 15w40 in my diesel and it worked well. But I like the RT6 I'm running now.

Its very new and not too many people have used it yet,therefore there isn't much in the form of data yet,which is why KCjeep thought it was a great idea to post the info he has gleaned thus far.
Why not try it and get a uoa done so the forum can have some of the data you are looking for.

I know why KC made the post, we PM'd back and forth for a couple of days discussing it. I have a HUGE stock of T5, PNZL HM and T6 so no real need to take on another flavor at this time, locally I cant find it in anything other than 15/40. IIRC its actually been out for 4-5 years.

Proof that thinner HDEOs are the wave of the future.

I suspect it will be an excellent alternative to T5, and that sale pricing is hard to beat!

Conventionals vs. Synthetics isn't about which is "better"; it's about which lasts longer, while assuring safe operation, in relation to cost. Any product can be over or under utilized. The same applies to filters.
Make an informed decision; first consider your operating conditions, next determine your maintenance plan, and then pick your lube and filter. Don't do it the other way around ...

Comparing PDS's between VPB and RT5 10w30's, I would go with RT5.

THe only thing the Blue has the T5 doesn't is a heavy dose of moly.I'm beginning to appreciate what a touch of moly can do as a wear preventer during warmup... before the ZDDP get activated by oil temp.

I'd buy either of these oils. While in "bench racing" mode, one thing I have not seen is the T5 NOACK. The VPB is not stellar in that regard but wonder how the T5 stacks up against it.

I thought moly also worked better at higher temps, and that boron or titanium were the better lower temp additive alternatives?

I am guessing the VPB is also using a magnesium/calcium combo add pack for detergent/dispersants whereas T5 uses straight calcium as far as I know.

Yes, T5 calcium is 2234ppm, magnesium is 7 ppm. Although T6 has 1187 ppm magnesium
