This might be 0w20, don't know for sure but it was labeled 5w20. I am posting for Corey, maybe he will shed light if that was a typo. In my experience Blackstone is very good.

Well, it's was Corey's error, he forgot to write it down and Blackstone assumed visc based on cst, but this oil is 0w20. If mods think to change it in title, cool.

Where does Redline get its base oils and additives from? Might be ghe same as SuperTech oil.
Whoever currently owns Redline (ConocoPhillips?) can "brand aura" the Redline name to sell Group3 full syns at high prices.

They could get PAO from ChevronPhillips ? But this GIII thing will really have me thinking twice on the name “Redline” … guess some lines still mention ester on the bottle … but new challenge to understand what is the real deal …

As far as I know the brand is still owned by ConocoPhillips, so I'd be surprised if they're sourcing from anyone else..and as mentioned, ConocoPhillips and Chevron have a joint venture producing both grp4 and 5 lubricants.

At least the old ester racing (high performance non-API certified street formula) oils are in a separate line. Its just consumer confusion that makes this bad.

Agreed.. they worked hard to get that rep for very high quality lubes, why dilute it?

Why dilute their reputation you ask? Short term bucks. The old cats want to retire soon you know. Seriously. ..... I think it is clever for the execs at Redline-ConocoPhillips-or-whoever-owns-the-brand to completely fool non-BITOG people with this Pro Series line. They can charge higher prices for an oil comparable to SuperTech or Mag1, etc. Smart business. Deceptive, sure. Deception is Marketing 101 though. In a textbook on Marketing, this is known as "brand leveraging", a shiny-happy way of saying "deception".

Does it hurt amsoil to have lesser quality lineups? There are many applications where the stoutness of their high end line aren't appropriate, this addresses that. I wouldn't run it just because for those said applications there are cheaper choices, without sacrificing anything.

Clearly they have went after the low saps crowd.. I guess they want traditional engines such as anything that isn't di turbo to use their high end stuff.

It's not a challenge with them.

Professional = no Group V
High Performance, Powersports, Racing = has Group V.

They have it because people have been bugging them that they want API approved oil for new car warranty. So they now make it.

True, but I think some wanted a full/majority POE/PAO that is API approved.
