So a 5W-40 full synthetic made by Warren Distribution and rated API SN and ACEA A3/B4 from a quick google, is that what the bottle says ?

Sounds fine to me.

What car ?

In the reviews someone claimed that it still has Supertech molded in the bottles. Anyway I think it was discussed earlier. Doesn't have any MB approvals so not as good as other oils out there.

Not sure why you would not use something like ROTELLA GAS TRUCK. Made for suv and truck applications that are severe, there are results coming that people are posting on other sites with stellar results. People are even using it in cars....I can honestly say that it is by far one of the best oils I have used now that I have run it my Jeep for over a month now. And past week has been -15. From the less noise, to smoothness, to not even a sense of any struggle or negative feedback or noise from engine..or parts that are under added stress under a cold start.

I'll second what the guy is saying about the Rotella Gas Truck oil. I like it, seems to be "good". I've only been using it because of the rebates they've been offering for the last six months, but I've got admit that I do like it...does seem a little quieter, use less oil, it stays "clean" a little longer than what I'm used to. I've been usi it in my 2018 Silverado for the last 6 months 15 thousand miles (three oil changes). Seems "good", but I won't buy it when the rebates end...I only shop for discounted/rebate oil. I'll probably go to 0w20 Super Tech or Amazon basics when this rebate run ends...or back to Pennzoil Platinum or Mobil 1 when they start theirs.

AmazonBasics oil is same as SuperTech and Mag1...all produced by Warren Distributing.

This oil looks to be one that I might be looking for...

https://mag1.com/products/passenger...synthetic-european-5w-40-a3b4-motor-oil/

High Temp High Shear 3.7
TBN 9.8
Viscosity at 100 degrees Celcius cst 13.18

So if these numbers are to be believed I think it will be great in turbo charged direct injection engines like Ecoboost. In fact, I think the HDEOs I have used are way too thick and 13.18 seems to be a bit thicker than 5W30, but not as thick as some of the HDEO oils I have encountered. This oil is like a dual-use HDEO in that it can go into both gas/diesel engines, but its not quite as thick. Many of the HDEOs Ive seen are above 14.

I havent seen much about this oil on here. I think there are a few older UOAs out there somewhere. My testing process takes a bit of time as I get to 5000 miles so this will be several weeks or months until I send the oil sample to Blackstone.
