Nice thick long lasting 5W-30. Would probably work well in old muscle cars.

Looks good. Is there an easy way to convert from %/wt to ppm for zinc phosphorous etc?

Does this oil have higher levels of ZZDP like the 5w40?

Move decimal point 4 places to the right.

No, this is an ACEA E6 lubricant, which limits its phosphorus to 800 ppm. I'm not sure why this isn't an E6, E7, E9 lubricant like its competition, but the new ACEA specs are out, so maybe there is a reason hiding somewhere.

Move the decimal point over a couple of places.

SN rated with 800 PPM Phos.

Outstanding Seq 4A if the graph at 31:30 is accurate....

Nice TBN and HTHS 3.5

Interesting. Not seeing where you got the 3.5 HTHS unless it was in the long video, I didn't watch much of that.

That HTHS minimum is required by the ACEA E6 and the CK-4.

Reading the technical data sheet it says that T6 also uses the PurePlus process of converting natural gas to a clear base oil just as Pennzoil Platinum. Since they own and produce both of these products is the 5w-30 T6 the same or better than the Pennzoil Platinum. I have seen the T6 at Walmart and it was cheaper than the Platinum but I always thought it was for Trucks or pickups and not to be used in a GM 6 Cylinder Impala. Would like to know your thoughts about this please.

Wouldn't say it's cheaper because it's in 4 quart (1 gal) jugs, whereas the PPPP is in a 5 quart.

But, current version T6 can be used in your Impala (now it might be the best choice) , it's dual rated. I occasionally use it in my Jetta.
