It has no approvals that I see, these are meet/exceed claims only. There is inattention to details elsewhere. The pour point for 5W/30 is calculated incorrectly. The vis at -25C is wrong except for 10W30; obvious if you know vis specs for xW oils. But the 5W40 seems interesting.

10w30 too low on phosphorus to meet the Ford Powerstroke valvetrain spec.


beanoil: Tough under heat, real dirty afterwards.

Yep, what gives you the indication that they actually carry the listed specifications?

I see a few "Triax Fleet" API listings

https://engineoil.api.org/Directory/EolcsResultsDetail?accountId=-1&companyId=10215&resultsUrl=%2FDirectory%2FEolcsResults%3FaccountId%3D-1%26brandName%3Dtriax%2520fleet

Don't see a specific acknowledgement from Ford for the Ford spec, among others.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

TRIAX LUBRICANTS - Trademark Details
Status: 602 - Abandoned-Failure To Respond Or Late Response. Go to justia.com and read what it says about triax. Im not saying there good or bad but rather please verify the lubricant has past at least some credibility tests somewhere.

again - they do have several HDEO (and some PCMO) approved, licensed products

https://engineoil.api.org/Directory/EolcsResultsDetail?accountId=-1&companyId=10215&resultsUrl=%2FDirectory%2FEolcsResults%3FaccountId%3D-1%26brandName%3Dtriax
(copy/paste into your browser; or do a name lookup like I do)

As of this morning, several HDEOs.
