Or Amazon I think. I bought some EPR on Amazon for a friend's car and it came from a Ferrari dealer.

What are the "active ingredients"?

Not much. Sounds like snake oil to me.
Distillates (petroleum), hydrotreated heavy paraffinic
This product contains less than 0.1% Benzine

No, honestly if you need a thicker oil use one. This looks to me like just another way to bump the viscosity at a very high price. JMHO
What do want/need to accomplish? If we know that you can get some good recommendations. thumbsup

Good oil, it shouldn't need anything added to it if the engine is in reasonable shape. thumbsup

Somebody recently posted a UOA with it and as far as I could see it bumped up the Ca and Mo levels from the virgin oil. So some added detergency and AW protection??...I couldn't see (from the UOA) that a huge jump in the 100c kv above the virgin oil had occurred, unless it sheared over the oci which is possible but not desirable IMO. So from the UOA it's unclear to me at least if it's a VM.

Lacking a TDS, it just seems like an expensive clone of Rislone... which I will use on occasion.
