I think these are pretty good specs for a "synthetic blend". What is interesting, also, is that Castrol is pricing this at about $26 (5 qt.) on Amazon and at Walmart, which is on the high end for a "synthetic blend".

That Noack number is excellent! Thanks for sharing.

5W-30 was a blend up unitl early Spring of this year, and then it changed over to full synthetic. Not sure about 10W-30, but it could be full syn now because the retailers were still showing the old syn blend label for the 5W-30 long after it had changed over. My local Walmart will still have some of the old jugs of the 5W-30 syn blend on the shelves some times.

Given the great results of the old 5w30 I'm not sure a FS version of the 10w30 brew would be that much better. I don't buy CM. At $25.

New Jet.com customers can get it sometimes for $13 when you use the 15% coupon. I did last month.
You have to keep an eye on it.

Looks pretty good.
If the NOACK and CCS numbers are to be trusted, this stuff would be a really good pick.
