Price and approval specs aside, I imagine it can be done.
We could ask Molekule to formulate it.

Good God it would have to be made specifically for every different kind of engine and climate. Made to order.

How about an ester-based 0W-50?

Or just start making Castrol RS again.

I give it one month of dealing with this bunch and the unlucky soul will be huddled in the corner rocking back and forth with a vacant stare - possibly muttering “no more” over and over.

In other words, not prudent at all...

A 5 quart jug would contain one quart of all the BITOG favorites... m1 0w40, magnatec 10w-30, pup 5w-30, maxlife 10w-30, and castrol edge 0w-40. what would that leave us?

You would need and entire line. From 0w16 to 20w50. Then oil formulated for specialty applications like left lane blocking, Stuck in snow oil, drive like granny oil, clean out powerbait oil. I park a lot oil.

For a smoking oil burning car, a repellent/ pesticide so you can drive to work and fog the neighborhood for mosquitos. Might want a mosquito HDEO for the coal rollers also.

I would pay quite a bit to have a 'made to order' oil. Each car would have fairly different blends.
