As promised, here are the VOA results. I see nothing here that would prevent me from running it for a full OCI--the add pack appears to be inline with many of the majors.

What say you?

Thanks for sharing 2015_PSD. Zinc and Phosphorus look good (per Ford's logic on CK-4).

Sinopec availability in the US...interesting.

Meets Ford approval.

Looks to be competively priced at $65 per 5-gallon bucket including shipping:

EDIT:

The TBN of 8.52 is less than the PDS reported vslue of 9.76

I scored mine from Amazon for $42 to the door, but it has since gone up to $58 to the door which is still a good bargain. Many of the majors did not meet the old Ford specification, so interesting this one does (nice find). It is supposed to be full synthetic, but I am not sure what that means from the Singapore point of view (i.e. is it synthetic like the US or Germany?).

$42 ?

Great price !

I had missed this originally but its still marketed as CJ-4.

Slightly off-topic but this is the first time I have noticed a CJ-4 actually claiming to meet WSS-M2C171-F1 spec.

Have I just not been paying attention?

WSS-M2C171-F1 or WSS-M2C171-E? -E was for CJ-4; I have not seen any CJ-4 that meets -F1.

No worries! There were not very many of the majors that met the -E specification so to see this oil meet it with a fairly decent VOA is encouraging. My guess is this oil will be around for a while and it is fairly cheap so another option until Ford gets it together. I saw that Amsoil Heavy Duty 5W-40 also meets the -F1 specification as does Amsoil Max Duty 5W-40 so there are more options coming available for -F1.

Oops,no.
HDEOs in Mobil Shell Castrol Petronas are popular here, mainly amongst fleet/individual owners.

Has anyone confirmed if this is full synthetic(US) or a synthetic blend?

I know of no good way to do this without spending more than the oil is worth (aside from believing the manufacturer's data).
