I would disagree that this UOA is pretty good. I'd say it's EXCELLENT! Coffee2

Too bad new formulation never made to my area and there are no more rebates on this oil. Are they still in business?

thumbsup I agree!

Is this the 2.2 and was it changed based on the OLM?

This is the 2.2 (2009) and I changed the oil with the OLM at 6%. I have another posted UOA using Formula Shell in this same car and I have to change that oil when the OLM is at around 18% because at that point the TBN starts getting low (1.3).

I got 5 gallons of this lube (the SN formula) FAR and seeing this UOA makes me feel a little better about actually using it...

This oil performed really well in almost every UOA i've seen. It is a shame it didn't catch on. Great UOA!

There were some other UOAs from another member's 2.2 on Formula Shell that were really good IIRC but not the full length of the OLM either. Good engines.

I'm with chubbs, seems like good stuff. Wish I could get it up here.

I wander why Walmart pulled a plug. You would think that with all the rebates, there was enough volume to register by walmart?

Good question, I've wondered the same. The WM near me has some G-Oil single quarts on clearance but they haven't moved since they won't go below $5/qt.

It looks like GET finally got the TBN piece right.
Too bad you can't find the stuff anymore.
I doubt that you'd see a better 10K UOA of any oil than you have with this one of G-Oil.
