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
