Shortly after I posted the thread about oils and intake valve deposits (IVD), it appears Valvoline just made a recent update to their PDS for ME. It's dated 2/19/20

Much improved Noack.

0w20 - 10%
5w20 - 8.5%
5w30 - 8.2%

However, as Gokhan pointed out, it appears SA is far more important at keeping them at bay than Noack.

I'm sure the Valvoline ME oils are great. Valvoline makes a good product.

Two words...port & injection. banana

I have no doubt VME's a great lube but I'll never know at that price point or unless I can find it on clearance somewhere, which never seems to be the case around my neck of the woods.

With how slow it sells, it might be awhile before it's on the shelves.

What's SA stand for? Is that sodium? Also what's considered a good level?

I ran ME in my old Jeep after getting it for 20 bucks at AZ on clearance. I was going to give it a run in my Pentastar, by for $56 a jug, no way. Mobil 1 AP is 21 dollars cheaper at Walmart. EP is even less.
