I did and was wrong. It turned out the TEOST really isn't that good of a test in regards to real world application. I'm not 100% convinced Red Line is the best choice for a modern GDI engine (although highly debatable). The high ester base may not make it good for really long drains in certain applications though.

I am giving the Redline Euro 5w-30 a try a couple of times in my Hyundai Kona AWD 1.6T. That mix has lower CA and the Ester combo should be an ok ant-LSPI for me. I dump at 3,000 miles anyway. I bought it on sale at Jegs for $9.28 if I remember right. I have to wait 2 weeks+ since they don't stock it and it is added to their normal skid order.

Thank you. I always looked forward to reading buster posts, especially buster en espanol. lol. There has to be some sulfated ash, with this level of beefiness. I see a spectacularly good thin oil. My prediction is zero problems with startup in Canadian winters. What sticks out is the HTHS of 2.67. I would expect ~2.9.

Yes. It was a sample from 2014 I believe. I should have included that. duh

Red Line's website states the HT/HS of the 5W20 as 3.0.
