API has released the new specification for ILSAC GF-6A and GF-6B and API Service category SP
Most interesting new development is the new Shield which works exactly like the starburst, but for 0W16, 0W12 and 0W8 viscosity grades.

API 1509

Details about the new marks are in Section 5

Thanks for that, Solarent! This should almost be a sticky in the Interesting Articles section, if you ask me.

Maybe, as time progresses, we could have a sticky just like this one with the current API and ILSAC information, and the historic ones kept at top. There's great information in these.
