Recent VOA of VWB 5w20 on PQIA indicates it has been put on a low sodium diet. Wonder about other Valvoline formulations?

Sorry, looked for it in the VOA thread and did not see it.

In 2014 PQIA looked at VWB and it had no moly back then and 449 ppm sodium shake it like a salt shaker LOL

Happy they ran Supergard along side of it in the last release , I was able to snap up quarts of Citgo Supergard with a $ 1.00 per qt rebate last week = $1.00 a quart and with the PQIA VOA it looks to be a stout syn blend conventional oil.

I now have a stash and it has replaced QSGB I ran in the Tarus and both Hyundai's in my sig with no problems this winter

Which makes for 9.00 dollar oil changes for my small fleet using a Bosch filter

Yes-I'm still working on a PDS for the Harvest King 5W20 & 5W30 syn blend & full synthetic oils to see if they're the same as Citgo Supergard, all I've been able to get from them so far is a Citgo MSDS. I'm wagering they're the same or very similar, $6.99/5 quarts for the syn blend (or less on sale) from Rural King every day.
