Besides perhaps increased LSPI Timing Chain protection - what else are your expectations of the new GF-6 oils that will be coming out later this year ?

I would like to believe that oil becomes more stout therefore it will perform better for longer. What I mean is that we will be able to run the OLM for 10k on conventional-semi synthetic without worrying about sludge.

My expectations are that it meets the spec. I;m not a Chemist nor a Tribologist. Can't give an expectation without education and experience.

There are several intellectuals on this board that can certainly answer the question. But, I would need to read published research (probably non-attribution) with multiple opinions with multiple PHD's.

I would think the engineers who build engines presented expectations to formulators. Hence the specifications.

We shall see....

There are product engineers that will not present "meeting specs' to their boss. That quality oil brand boss wants his engineer to exceed the specs.

It makes the difference between working for Pennzoil (example), or a company that bottles house / store brand-name oils.

Somehow I find it hard to believe that “SN+” is not already meeting GF-6 specs.

Whatever those specs may be.
