Grabbed another 3 bottles this AM, it's the "professional" grade FWIW. Left 2 bottles on the shelf for someone else as I now have enough for almost 2 years.

I have a number of bottles of VSOT dated 1999 on the back. Is this the better formula, or doesn't the date matter?

I still think we should do though mixing of the entire bottle before sending in a sample for analysis. I'm not convinced that stratification is not playing a part in the analysis.

Valvoline conventional oil is always available in 5 Quart containers at Wal-Mart for a very nice price. I was thinking for a while just to just the Valvoline oil and add some VSOT to make the additive content stronger. But with the variable results people are getting from VSOT I think I will just stick to Chevron oil.

I emailed Valvoline Synpower about any possible formula changes, and here's their response:

The formula has not changed in these oils. The only change in that last few years has been a decrease in Zinc, but nothing harmful to any type of new vehicle. The SynPower Oil Treatment is available at Napa Auto Parts.
