As title says anyone use it try it run it can be had on Amazon not for cheap but has some outstanding spec numbers may give it a go and run a UOA just to see.

Will it perform better than any of the major brand synthetics that sell at half the price or even less? What kind of vehicle and engine are we looking to put this into?

I would love to see a UOA and VOA on it, but the Ravenol doesn't seem to be worth the price for something no better than the wide variety of synthetics available at well under half the price of the Ravenol.

What kind of car will you be using it in? What is your intended OCI? smile

Redline 0w20 makes the claim of HTHS 2.9.
Ravenol is 2.64

Ravenol also makes impossible specification claims on one of their 5W30's, too.
