I see Castrol shows their current offerings here

https://www.castrol.com/en_us/unite...uids/new-api-sn-plus-specifications.html

(I do not know if this is a completely current list)


And Pennzoil has something here:

https://www.pennzoil.com/en_ca/education/know-your-oil/what-you-need-to-know-about-api-sn-plus.html

but I know for sure it isnt current as there is no mention of say PP EURO 0W40 and it is available as a SN PLUS formulation.


Do you know if there is a more up to date list available on-line for even say Pennzoil for its SN PLUS oils?

This is a great question....doesn't appear to be an SN+ list on the API site, although I can't say I poked around the site that much.

https://www.api.org/products-and-se...assifications/latest-oil-classifications

Very surprised to hear that PP Euro 0W40 is SN+ now, great info and thanks for sharing it!

Yeah there is, it is under Advanced Search Options, Designations, and is labeled "SN PLUS".

If you are searching by Product instead of Company it is under Designations.

Everything with the SN PLUS designation from API's website, if the link works.

EDIT: It's 162 pages long :P

Other than low speed detonation prevention with turbo charged engines, is there any advantage to the SN+ designation? Less calcium and more magnesium doesn't seem like any better performance for normally aspirated engines.

Great question, I've often wondered myself about this very thing.

Thanks, guys, good that somebody looked at that site a lot more closely than I did.
I am poring through some of the higher viscosity SN+ oils and am very surprised to see that Delo 400 XSP 5W40 is on the list.
I am hoping to find some other gems!

EDIT - there are two 10W20s from DKR Petroleum on the list!
Taiwanese company...fascinating.
I'd assume VIIs are not required for that grade???

I would think about ship to store...I have ordered oil to be shipped to my home and gotten the wrong thing delivered (not WM) so I prefer to see the jug before I buy.
I have to admit that I am used to just grabbing oil at WM on the spur of the moment, don't always plan ahead.
Maybe next spring, I already have my M1 0W30 AFE ready for my late fall/early winter change...wasn't planning to buy it while at WM earlier this week, but they had rollbacks!!!

Why? SN+ supercedes SN
