I know Amsoil has exemplary oils and have used them for years. Was interested if they are using less pao now-which again I think can be overblown in terms of real life protection. Looked up an Amsoil Distributor in Germany, which described Amsoil 5w30 signature series as synthetic technology.
AMSOIL SIGNATURE SERIES 5W-30 SYNTHETISCHES MOTORÖL.
Here is a copy to link.

I should have stated Germany has a law to what can be defined as synthetic.

Since the entire industry is heading towards di turbo, consider group 3 is better then group 4 at combating lspi. Maybe pao is better in the cold and stay in grade 0w40's, but the industry is driving formulas and nothing is bigger then the di turbo driving formulas. But since they did that a long time ago, very likely it was a cost savings move. But for people with a di turbo wh research every aspect of combating lspi with a lubrication formula, Amsoil SS is one of the few solid choices.

In Germany a Grp3 can't be labeled synthetic.

Some grp3+'s have pao like numbers. For example, Mobil's Visom 6 is a Grp3+ base stock with a VI of 142 and a noack of 8%. Chevron and Shell have similar high grade grp3+ base stocks.
