Just noticed two brands of xW20 oil listing SN Plus and advertising GDI Turbo attributes. . The GDI Turbo advertising is on the front and the SN Plus is on the back of each of the two jugs. Enjoy. smile

Other than licensing cash to GM, what are major differences between SN plus and Dexos 1.2?

That's what I was wondering... is it Dexos 1 Gen 2 licensing that drove all of WM's oil prices up a couple bucks? If so, BOO GM. Make engines that run on existing oil specs for all other engines smile

Why immediately blame dex1g2 instead of SN Plus?

Because none of the SN Plus oils were on the shelves when the prices jumped, it was right after WM removed all the D1G1 oils?? shrug

? Could easily have been Walmart deciding to gouge a captive market, or neither.

In the last year the price of WTI oil has increased from $45 per bbl to $73.80 per bbl. Some of that was bound to show up in base oil prices.

Cool thanks. I’ve got a case of Amsoil SS 0W20 waiting to go in our CRV. With the fuel dilution issue these engines have i may try one of those oils for at least 5K intervals till and if Honda does something about the issue. No way I’ll be following the olm till there’s a fix.

I care more about my engine than saving a few dollars for oil. Especially if there’s an issue.

What price increase? Recently bought Platinum Dexos1 Gen2/SN Plus 5W30 5-quart jug at Walmart for less than $23 (less than $13 after rebate).

API SN Plus what a joke, EU oils carry Api SN and dont have the problem with GDI turbo engines.
