Thank you for posting. Many here have been curious about this oil. Hmmm, not really loaded with add's like I though it would be. TBN is low as well.

Shell oils typically show lower starting TBN than most competitors - mind you that does not necessarily show the rate at which the TBN decreases.

I used four 5 quart jugs of this oil last year in my 2018 Subaru Outback at 6000 mile intervals. It seemed okay but I had consumption issues on the last jug so I stopped using it after that.

Running this in the Subaru now. Its OK but its not a lowe end torque maker. Seems "gooey" compared to the Subaru Genuine 0W20 - which seems like you poured "air" into the crankcase. Currently Subaru Idemitsu has run the best on the 2 litre. Just behind that was Valvoline Advanced with Magnetec as Makeup. The Valvoline loved the Maggie and it made for a smoother running sump and a stellar UOA posted on this site. -Ken

My hair became greyer, and my wrinkles deeper. More seriously it looks like they reduced a bit calcium/phosphorus/zinc. Or it's just batch variation, or lab differences, or both.

Yep exactly. Bought brand new a few weeks ago at a busy Advance Auto. Check those dates!

Why are people sending in samples of this stuff? Subie and PQIA have every RGT virgin sample posted in most weights.
