Seems like an oil worth trying in my Accord. Would be nice if all oils provided the details that this company does. Do these compare well with the big name oils?

Got that oil in my car right now. Bought the 5 gallon pail last summer.

I seem to recall Amazon has some good specials on it occasionally.

Me neither. That's just general product info.

Until I see some manf. info like a TDS I don't believe I would use it.

Is it on GM's Dexos1 approved list?

I don't have the source but I believe someone did find that it's Dexos g1 approved. I think the trick was that it's listed in the Dexos list under a different name the company uses?

Been eyeing it for a minute now, PQIA data looks pretty good. Plenty of Boron & Moly in there.

May invest in some when the PP stash runs out.

You can get this on amazon and ebay also.

I didn't buy the 5 gallon jug because it looks like it would be a mess without the $40 pail pump.

And with the $40 pail pump it becomes less of a deal smile

Well that's nice, but some unheard of brand ought to at least have a Link to a spec sheet.

Reliance Fluid Technologies is what the Milesyn stuff is listed as on the API website, all the 'Gas' oils are SN/GF5.

https://engineoil.api.org/Directory/EolcsProductResults?accountId=-1&brandName=milesyn

FWIW I'm currently using their SXR5W20 and have a bucket of 5W30 waiting in the wings. All seems to work just fine, no odd issues to report.

Several of their oils were Dexos listed, but that license has expired and I haven't seen any update to the new spec, but I have no DI cars so it doesn't really matter to me. As for getting it out of the pail, I just tip it off into a Valvoline 5qt jug, very easy, no mess.

If you turn the spout to the top, it's very easy to fill 1-gallon or 5-qt jugs without spilling a drop.
