With GF-6 a distant pipe dream, there is noise GF-5 Plus this will be pushed through, do you think it will happen?

Great article...shows just how serious many automakers are about LSPI problems, among other things.

Agreed. Great article and current to the issues facing new (small displacement Direct Injection+Turbo) vehicles, among other concerns. This will be a big move in the right direction if GF-6 is actually three years away.

I agree, and I'm sure other makers are not crazy about the idea that GM's dexos1 Gen 2 could be the only license that shows DIT owners that an oil has passed some kind of an LSPI test.
