The hyper-low SAPS aspect seems to be the main thing. 0.4% sulfated ash.

That's fine and all, but the real question is: "how much moly does it contain?"

Sounds like typical big-company customer service response time: 16 years!

"Kamala Krishna, manager of process research in downstream technology and services at Chevron, said the idea for the product came in 2003 from a comment made by a major OEM customer to a Chevron executive."

I see no statistical evidence that this is anymore than the usual Oil Company hype of a new product.

Ash is not added to the oil but it is a byproduct of certain additives after combustion.

It's True! This innovation will make Casstrol, Mobil and Pennzoil scurry away whimpering at their inferior product!

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.
