I find it strange that the president of the PQIA is apparently endorsing the product.
Won't that damage PQIA's objectivity?
I guess they can be an "industry cheerleader" even if its really hype. PQIA wants donations from Chevron-Oronite, so why not butter some buns?
Also, I thought there were some BMW LL-04 or -12, -17 oils that had this very low saps level.
Reminds me of what Fuchs did years ago, developing a ZDDP-Free oil. There are enough organic AW/FM additives to avoid use of ashy stuff.
I would get excited about it if it really is a longer drain oil than the already good Delvac1 or Rotella oils: "Shaw said a major benefit of the new oil is that it extends maintenance intervals, and that, he said, is “a huge game changer”." ---- Unless they are only talking about DPF filters.
