Hey everyone,

Not sure if this has been posted before but here goes.
Looks like The Valvoline Nextgen failed miserably with a NOVAC of 18.4!

Pennsoil on the other hand looks amazing! NOVAV 6.5 and Moly at 272 ppm and a TBN of 9.46

Yes, there have been TWO threads on it in the PCMO section already.

Yeah, not many people using 5w-20 in diesel cars, let's shut this one down.
