No complaints about "Where's The Beef" with Schaeffer add-packs. Both the 9000 and this 7000 are loaded.

Correct. The 7000 series base oil is a mix of Group II (approx. 80%) with about 20% Group IV PAO.

The 9000 series base oil is a mix of Group IV-V.

Thank you. In that case the 9000 seems like a decent deal, price wise.

I seem to remember a thread comparing to two a while back but I can't find it but I think most people thought the 7000 looked better on paper than the 9000.

Perhaps that's because 'most people' who commented that way don't know anything AND they think the VOAs show them every relevant thing. (-;

The data sheet shows this oil to have a TBN of 7.0-7.5 but the VOA shows my sample to have a TBN of 5.9. Makes me wonder if the lab made a mistake or the oil is off.

Schaeffer's pricing is leaning more towards the fleet end of things. If you want a 12qt case, the oil is pretty pricey, but if you buy a 5 gallon bucket it's actually downright reasonable.

Only problem is that unless you're maintaining a fleet or you drive A LOT, it's going to take a long time to use 5 gallons of oil.

Also, one thing that a lot of tests miss is that Schaeffer uses (or at least used, until recently) antimony in their oils. Most labs dont even test for it, so it gets overlooked. I'm no scientist, but I think the idea is that it has a synergistic effect with moly.

I'm only paying $8.30 a quart for Schaeffer at NAPA.

Schaeffer 9003D 5w30 is $6.69 my cost direct as a commercial account. Problem is that I have to order $375.00 minimum to get wholesale and shipping free. Their shipping is crazy high for a couple of cases of oil. I like the products but no local vendor to buy from so shipping is a must. Amsoil commercial accounts get $11.99 flat rate until $250 then its free.
