Hello:

Just checking up on the new stuff labeled with Titanium. Notice I had 40C and 100C and TBN tested. VI is 146. This is the German made version.

Thank you, Scott.

I wonder how they calculated the VI to be 146. When I plug in their 40C and 100C visc numbers into Widman's calculator, I get 162. Anyway, not that critical. It's just a calculated value anyway.

My bad. I had the numbers entered wrong. It is 146. Their 40C visc is quite a bit different from spec sheet.

I don't believe b-stones reported VI or the KV40 is correct.

If you paid for a 40C and 100C test, have them retest.

The vis tests were all made @100C. The first is SUS and the second is Kinematic viscosity.


Scars remind us of where we have been, but do not have to dictate where we are going.

The "Comments" section of the report (near the top) states the vis @ 40C tested as 88.82 cSt and VI was 146.

It only takes that much titanium to make up for no moly or boron??
