Not sure exactly when HBM meant here, but dexos1 Gen 2 and dexos2 are different standards.
Seems like d1G2 caught on here for the former.
Don't see much d2 discussion on here...

Which acronyms does it decode? confused

It shows the top 12 2-digit codes often found on oil containers and their relevance to vehicle age and oil evolution. Google is your friend.

They have SM listed twice...SN should be the one on the top row far right.
