The presence of sodium plus higher calcium than other oils in this class make me wonder if this is suitable for combating LSPI.

I think the nice dose of Zinc and Moly would help.

So higher levels if zinc and moly compensate for the sodium and higher calcium?

Yes, in some SAE papers, this is dicussed. It's posted on bitog somewhere but I'm having difficulty finding it.

Low end hot viscosity, but Noack is nice and low.

Yeah PimTac Wemay is right about that phenomenon.

I saw this test result yesterday and I was like holy cow shocked2

That is a great NOACK number. In old school Pennzoil Ultra territory.

This thread is a happy coincidence for me as I have 7 liters of DXG on the shelf about to be used. I was second guessing my choice because of lack of independent information on this oil, having only the RAVENOL data sheet to go by. Vehicle is a new 2018 4Runner. I am wanting to use a lite 5w-30 or possibly 0w-30. Per this PQIA test the DXG seems acceptable being even a little lighter than the RAVENOL data sheet claims.

The latest version of this oil is dexos1 Gen 2, but I'd guess this is probably the older dexos1 version.
I was a bit surprised by the low viscosity at 100C, but it really wouldn't bother me as long as the HTHS is reasonable...I am also surpised that the PQIA looked at this oil at all, not exactly the dollar/convenience store Brand X stuff that consumers might have to watch out for.
Thanks to the OPer for sharing!

Looked it up, Ravenol says the HTHS is 3.1...one could argue that this is a good gas mileage oil given that the HTHS is pretty solid for SN/GF5 while the 100C (roughly normal operating temp) viscosity is low. The manufacturer also claims a still outstanding NOACK loss of 6% for the d1G2 version.

This oil, like some other Ravenol oils, uses tungsten as an additional additive. It is also designed to mitigate LSPI.

Interesting, thanks. Do you know if the Tungsten is specially for that purpose?
