Nice amount of moly & boron in it, Havoline makes decent oil, I just can't always find it easily around here for a decent price since WM quit carrying it.

Strong viscosity too at 11.75. Certainly not a weakish 5w-30 as so many seem to be.

It seems like Chevron has reformulated this Havoline back to the way it was additive wise. There were some previous analysis that showed less Moly and boron.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Maybe that was the regular Havoline 5w30 and not the HM version? Not sure which is why I ask. Thanks.
