How is this oil? Never heard of it as Havoline is not repped well in our town. QS and PYB are the mainstream. Specfically the 5w-20.

Does it do good on long OCI's?
How about wear numbers?

It's as good as any other $20 jug of oil. Use with confidence. Also for $20 it's 6 quarts instead of the usual 5.

It used to be a Texaco product, but Texaco merged with Chevron a while back. Texaco was, Chevron is a major player and Chevron is a top tier energy company. I actually run their 5w-40 ProDS Euro in my Colorado Duramax.

I used Havoline oils almost exclusively throughout the '80s - the early 2000's. It was always cheap in my area. Often buying it on sale at whatever store it was sold at and a rebate to boot. I was buying it for anywhere between .029¢-.069¢ per quart when purchasing a whole case(12qts) after all discounts & rebates.


Retired 6 yrs now & lovin' it

The volatility rating looks pretty bad at 13.4%. I bet this will vaporize thru the PCV system a lot easier than a conventional 5w-20 at arounr 7.8%.

I never knew why car "burned more synthetic" and now I wonder if this rating has something to do with it.

13.4% is "pretty bad"? You should email GM your thoughts on that. Fwiw, 13% or better is what Dexos requires. And let me know where you buy that 8% dino..I wanna pick some up!

I’ve swapped over to Havoline ProDS for the value and convenient packaging. Used to use Mobil1 almost exclusively.

Chevron seems to make good stuff.

My Fusion 2.5 never sees a change on the dipstick during an OCI, in the 5.8qt sump I use the whole package, being a 6 quart package is why I use it. The oil has been fine so far and seems to be more quiet than motorcraft oil.

*The link is not a D1 / Gen 2 rated oil as calcium is over 2,000 ... I would have to believe the NOACK would be lower now in the 5W20 as well as the calcium for LSPI concerns..

Used it the UOA came back absolutely great used a half a shy half quart of oil for the entire OCI 6784 miles.
Use this product with full confidence and don't look back.

Amalie, Castrol, Citgo, Mobil, Pennzoil, Quaker State, Shell, Valvoline and Warren Distribution are some of the companies that offer 5W-20 oils that are D1G2 licensed.
