Anybody know who makes it and is it any good? Said Dexos Gen2 on the bottle.

It varies by region. I confirmed by email that the Super Tech synthetic oil in my area is made by Warren in Omaha. Itís good stuff. They also make Mag 1 and some other private label oils. Iím running the 5w30 in my Frontier right now.

I'm not a fan, especially for a couple bucks more can get you into a quality, name brand synthetic like M1 or Pennzoil synthetic that you don't have to question the quality of. If you have to ask, you're already clearly second guessing the quality of ST so why bother running it? I'd only run it in a cheap car or something I was only going to drive for a short while before trading in. Anything kept long term gets the good stuff!

It is likely better then some of the fake boutique oils out there that have dodgy formulas and charge over 10 bucks a qrt for the same base oil. Buncha marketing gimmicky companies out there. Having said that, costco deal m1 is just over 4 bucks a qrt, hard to beat that.

I used to run it, for years in fact. It was good serviceable oil. I did notice more varnish with it though.

Just put some in my 2017 Silverado 5.3. Definitely runs more quiet than any other 0W-20 Iíve ran (first fill using 5W30)

Interesting considering how much is going on with VVT and AFM etc with the new gen 5.3L Ö

Thinking the piston jets must have helped Ö my 2017 is considerably quieter than my 2010 even with 0w20 in the newer and 5w40 in the older

Whats the NOACK and whats the HT/HS and boiling point aka FP. I've learned you can't have it all in this biz. This is why I pounced on the AAP clearance on IDEMITSU. [censored] oil for [censored] car.

What is this, 1943? Try again for "Asian" or specifically Japanese.

And by the way, the FP (assuming you mean flash point) is not "aka" the boiling point. Where did you learn your physical chemistry?
