The top frame on PQIA's home page is a menu that lists all the oils they have tested. Now this is 3 years old but it might give you some idea about their composition.

Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Pajero, you COULD always get a VOA done yourself and share it with the board; that would be an awesome gesture. It's just a neat way to give back to this community. In addition, other than just giving us numbers to critique, a VOA really doesn't tell you anything about how an oil MAY perform, but once we have a VOA and UOAs you can start to understand how it might perform in your engine.

IMHO, just buy and run the oil. PP is a great oil for the money; PPHM PDS sheets are largely comparable to regular PP; and as the intelligent chemists on this board frequently remind us, the majority of what makes an oil 'tick' is not going to show up on a $25-40 VOA sample anyways. Put the oil in your engine, run it til the maintenance minder says change it, collect the sample, UOA and share it, and your car will be just fine.
