Koehler 5w50 synthetic industry ratings? #4614589

Picked up some Kohler 5W50 full synthetic on a superb sale at AutoZone this past summer. Iíve read of other folks finding the same deal and stocking up.

I cannot find official industry ratings for the oil such as JASO MA, etc. It simply says (paraphrasing) it is suitable/meets requirements for use in ATVs and other similar vehicles.

I donít see an analysis (VOA or UOA), wondering if anyone has anything they could share that they havenít posted or offer any ideas on the additive package in this oil. As well, is this the same oil (with different packaging) offered by some of the ATV companies, thus would have an analysis possibly under another name?

Thanks in advance!

What a rare oil grade...
Only Castrol Edge, Mobil 1, and Motorcraft offer it for sale in common locations.
(not including Bel-Ray, Klotz, etc, etc)

Probably the same exact stuff in the Motorcraft bottle (Citgo? or who?)

What's the MFG symbol on the bottom of the container?


Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.

Amsoil brought out a 5w-50 for the Mustang a few years back. A very stout oil.

Iím most interested in the ad-pack, so if it is the same stuff as the PS4/plus, then that would answer my question! Thanks!
