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.

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.
