is the supertech 5w30 synthetic still dexos rated? 5 quart jugs and single quarts at my local wal mart no longer have dexos on them. Not sure if its old stock or if they dropped the dexos rating so I figured someone on here would know

According to the link below... it's still Dexos rated along with 5w20.

I've never seen the Dexos logo on any Supertech... Always made me skeptical.

Pre-Dexos has boron but no moly. Their still on the official GM License List and all the UOA are still showing the plus moly minus boron add pack they went to for Dexos.

PS The Supertech 15W40 Is also on the Detroit Diesel extended drain list. Some of you should give WPP a little credit.

Walmart website doesn't advertise that it is Dexos either. I'm siding on the side of caution and saying that it's not Dexos certified.

The problem is GM licenses it.

Call or email WPP if you want confirmation. Unlke most of the majors they are usually very forthcoming with info.

The ST synthetic 5w-30 jugs and bottles at my local WM have the Dexos logo. Maybe you are just seeing older stock.

The GM website is the only one that matters to check the active Dexos license.
