Ravenol Super Synthetic SSL 0W-40 VOA

Thinking of using this in my Audi S3 - NOACK is low, Group 4 from the specs and what the oil-club is saying and should preform pretty well. Waiting on my Pennzoil Platinum Euro NOACK test to come back to see what it will come in at.

You know it has to be 100% GroupIV (PAO) because it says both "Made in Germany" and 'Fullsynth' on the front label. Laws in Germany won't let GroupIII synthetics claim Fullsynth for oil sold there, and that's a German label.

You can't go wrong with Ravenol oil. As for NOACK, this oil is 8.5%, very good, yet any MB 229.5 oil on the shelf is under 10%, so I don't consider it much difference. If you pay more than $5 per quart for this, you've paid too much, since Walmart peddles Castrol Edge 0w40 for that much and it is spec'ed about the same.
