Did they change the formula ? Would explain the close out and absence.

I can see the dexos1 Gen 2 logo on the 5W30, but not the 5W20.
I think the 5W30 definitely would have needed a reformulation to meet d1G2, it used to have high calcium and sodium.

Absolutely VP. I changed the Sonata's oil today, using the 5w20 and there is no dexos logo on the front or lic# on back...

I actually like Purple too..

But in all of the oil ran in my Altima 3.5 coupe.. RP actually was spooky in noise I heard in my car while running it. And it was not oil filter related. Strange deal there.

Having said that... I have no doubt that Royal Purple is a very good oil. Just not in my VQ motor.

Hey car51 I got 10 qts of Federated Auto full synthetic oil for less the RP. And by a decent margin at $33.

But I don't knock anyone for running what they want to run. I have run RP as well. Plus numerous other oil that was over $25 for 5 qts.

It's funny you bring this up...
My wife's previous car was an M37 with that wonderfully throaty VQ. We ran RP in it after the maintenance pkg expired. I couldn't tell, but she always mentioned how much smoother it ran. Go figure. Lol

The 3.7 is a bit different of another animal. It has the DLC on the cylinder walls. It well could have been the RP was a better match for that motor by how and what the motor was like. Makes sense to me.
