Interesting Amsoil article. And note that Amsoil says LSPI is an issue for TGDI and DI engines. There's a pretty big faction here that believes it affects only TGDI.

I just noticed that the PDS for the SS line has been updated to reflect the new LSPI quenching formulas!

https://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-product/m.../?code=AZOQT-EA

8.8% NOACK for a 0W30 sounds pretty good to me...that 5W30 at 6.6% is even better than the previous formulation.

here's what they replied me back



The new formulation is only available in the SS right now and the data bulletins for it should be available soon. XL will be sometime this month, Unfortunately we do not have an exact date of the release yet but it will be announced online once it is available.
