This is and Australian and New Zealand company Nulon. This oil in 5W-50 spec is actually used by quite a few teams in the V8 Supercars Australia.

What do you think?

Mmmmm all that sweet ZDDP and Moly slobber
TBN is low so probably not meant for "normal" use in a car.

Odd that the TBN is so low with that much calcium.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

I don't know a whole lot about how TBN is calculated using FTIR, but I did find out that most labs use the ASTM test for used oil, not new oil, because it requires a significantly different testing method. Most approximations of equating the used oil test results to the new oil test results is usually around 2.0 adjustment, which means the TBN would be around 7.4 (if this was the used oil test). 7.4 is in the range of most oils intended for use with low sulfur fuels.

If somebody is in the mood for a test, donate the oil to me, and I'll run 4L of this in my Outback for 7,500 miles, beat the snot out of it, and UOA it so we can see how it holds up smile
