Great option for those needing a 40 grade that have a GDI engine.

HT/HS - 4.2
TEOST - 18.2
[email protected] - 81.8
[email protected] - 14.0
VI - 178
Ash Content - .72

The DI line contains mPAO.

"Testing also revealed that increasing the level of Molybdenum reduces the tendency of these abnormal combustion events. Driven Racing Oil’s DI line of synthetic Direct Injection engine oils provide excellent protection from Low Speed Pre-Ignition by delivering cutting-edge lubricant technology specifically developed for direct injection engines. Every Driven DI oil utilizes an advanced additive package designed to reduce abnormal combustion and protects against soot related wear. Featuring a lower volatility base oil that reduces crankcase vapors and carbon buildup on intake valves, Driven DI oils also reduce turbocharger deposits as evidenced by exceptional performance in the TEOST turbocharger deposit test."

For $14/qt it better be good. Given the likelihood of DI vehicles making it past 100k at this point, I think I’ll pas and stick with something a bit more mainstream and lower cost.

Hard to see what actual value add this provides compared to something like M1 0w-40, IMO. The moly claim is interesting, and the low volatility is useful, but? I don’t even see a NOACK value.

I hear you. I do wish their data sheets were better. I think the reason why some don't post Noack is because Noack values can range when testing, so I'm told. And companies end up going with te lower value, as expected. With that said, Driven does make top notch oil. The SA is .722 and they use mPAO. I haven't seen a VOA of the DI oils but I think they contain over 300ppm of moly which is also good at helping with LSPI. cheers
