I have seen reference to A40 not allowing xW-30 weights, but other than that...

Click on it, and it'll give you a description.

Basically, it's to protect modern emissions equipment by limiting the amount of additives.

I think it's supposed to be Minimum TBN.

From that Lubrizol site, VW 504 looks the most impressive to me.

That's wrong. Go to the ACEA website and look at the sequence yourself. A3/B4-16 is still 1.0 - 1.5% ash and >10 TBN.

Don`t you think that ≥ 1.0 and ≤ 1.6 means 1.0-1.6?
I mean, including 1.0 and including 1.6 %
