For whatever reason, he has Rotella listed separately, and that's Shell, too.

Thanks for the work. If you have time and the data perhaps you can divide the Dino from synthetics.
Perhaps BITOG isn't that different from the rest of the world. I'd bet that if the numbers are crunched Pennzoil is the top dino and Mobil the top synthetic on BITOG.

Thanks for all your hard work.

The top 10 fell just about where I figured they would. Thanks for taking the time, you should tally them up for 2011 too!
