Looks like Valvoline went back to moly.

Thanks for posting. This is a great example of why a voa will not tell the whole story about a oil. Price aside, you can run this with no worries.

Moly for VME. VAS has moly, boron and titanium. It is a sharp departure away from the sodium based Synpower.

Looks like Sodium (additive) is going extinct. Castrol dropped it, now Valvoline... anyone else still using it?

PimTac: excuse my ignorance; but is Advanced Synthetic replacing the Synpower?

Thanks in advance

It appears to be their new labeling. Synpower is gone. The new d1G2 specs must have printed them to change their naming.

Thanks for posting this VOA. While it's now a LSPI friendly oil due to the reduced calcium and increased magnesium and the elimination of sodium it's viscosity seems low to start out with. It doesn't have much before it shears into a 20 weight oil, especially in a turbo engine. I know my Ford EcoBoost 2.3 shears the oil while maintaining the flash point and seemingly not showing fuel dilution. My last ~4,300 mile UOA with Motorcraft 5W-30 sheared well into the 20 weight bracket while maintaining it's flash point and not showing fuel dilution. It had a remaining TBN of 3.6, lots of life left in the oil, but now out of viscosity grade.

If its that big a deal why don't you send Blackstone the extra $10 and ask them to re-test the sample. grin

Thank you to the OP for taking your time and money to contribute to the forum's knowledge base.

It appears to be their new labeling. Synpower is gone. The new d1G2 specs must have printed them to change their naming.

The VFS 5W30 I bought recently actually showed up as Synpower on my WM receipt...I think even the Valvoline website says this line was formerly Synpower.
I'm pretty sure I saw Synpower jugs with the d1G2 logo, but they sure didn't last long. Probably was a good chance to score some fine oil for cheap when they cleared those out for the incoming VFS jugs.
