It's Valvoline oil. Castrol uses less Ti; Kendall uses more. Valvoline falls in the middle, and they are the only three (AFAIK) that use Ti in the oil.

Oil/filter TBD

Know which one it could be? Conventional?

I'd say it was conventional 5W-30 that sheared down to a high 20-weight at 9.1 cst.

Could be a NAPA oil change with their oil, and a black NAPA gold filter.
