Has anyone seen anything about Quaker State and API SP? I have been looking for an updated PDS and can’t find anything. Their website is still talking about the changes for SN+. I saw PYB will be a sun blend now for API SP but they have a special conventional for quick lube places.

The PYB conventional isn't really conventional. It's labeled that way so that quick lube places don't have to change their pricing tiers or put up new signs.

I believe 6a is Dexos 1 and 6b is Dexos 2.
I think that's what I read.

GF-6A is for 0W-20 and up (5/20,5/30,0/30 etc), while GF-6B is for 0W-16 and lower (so eventually 0W-12, 0w-8, etc).

No matter the subject, it is always best to verify what you think is true before posting.

Why the API would even have a correlation to a GM license I'm not sure.

Makes me wonder, where does regular vegetable oil sit? A solid 30?

A large amount of your posts are inaccurate.

It is a completely valid question as to why an API license designation would somehow be related to a GM license. Like I said, it is a good idea to validate stuff that may pop into your head before you post. That is a good idea, right?

PYB isn't all GII+ any more?
