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.

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.
