Carries a nice list of approvals too, laying waste the oft-heard "it's too good for approvals or specs, that's why it doesn't have any" theme.

Phosphorous is at the API 600 ppm minimum. Ravenol seems to have intentionally done that to show they have different antiwear technology.

Is there an equivalence for antiwear characteristic where Boron content offsets the decrease in Phosphorous?

This oil has tungsten disulfide and other exotic AW additives.

It is also advertised as not containing any VM,

This oil is not available in USA any longer. Blauparts had a blowout sale about a year ago on this stuff. It was really cheap, like $30 a 5L jug and it was Dexos 2 so I ordered some. They told me it was oversold and couldn't fill the order. Blau also stopped selling the 5w30 Version as well.
