I see that many of the German manufactured synthetic motor oils have gone to class III like all the name brands here in the states. They also call themselves synthetic but with a HC designation pointing out they are at least partially class III. The non class III synthetics say they are full synthetic. I wish that the rest of the world would follow suit with this type of labeling. Not dissing class III oil at all. Just like the fact that consumers know what they are paying for up front.
