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.

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??
