Driven uses Afton as a technical partner.

The DI oils all have a SA of .72. They use mPAO/III/V. I don't know the specs of the 5w30. They are very shear stable oils.

Whenever I see lists like this posted I always wonder how to interpret it. Should I see in those numbers some way to determine that this oil meets the same licensing requirements for SN or SP? How about Mercedes-Benz 229.5 approval, do those numbers equal that? What about Porsche A40?

At least with an approval I know that the oil has to have met some stringent and demanding tests for oxidation and grade stability, among many other tests. Here I only see numbers. What does it equate to in the real world?
