Yeah . . . I cringed when I saw that. I had just put this in to finish out the winter, got tired of the heater and idling oil temp dropping to 130 for the 15w.

I was being sarcastic, it wasn't the oils fault.

Yep, because the statement that MolaKule has made before that most of today's anti-wear additives don't show up in a $30 UOA doesn't apply to Amsoil. Not on the VOA, not in the oil, right? Pure fabrication on his part, I'm sure. duh

And I don't even use Amsoil.

One concern for me is Amsoil PDS shows viscosity at 15.4, this VOA shows 14.45?

NO Moly?? Once again, doesn't look worth the extra $$ to me vs off the shelf quality HDEO's at WalMart...

Seems to me like many of these high end "Boutique" oil companies suckered everyone in with a good ol fashioned "bait and switch" !!


Just say NO to thin oils and M1!

1 or 2 $6 cans of Liqui Moly 2009 can remedy that deficiency.

Well it did cut my iron wear in half compared to T6. That's gotta be worth something?
