I currently have this in my 06 Scion tC 5spd. It's good stuff.

Compare this with a VOA I had performed almost a year ago by Blackstone - See it here.

I've noted your skepticism. I've already asked WearCheck's customer service representative to double-check another set of results for another oil with twice the concentration of sulfur and other elements than that found by the Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA).
