Viscosity out of specification? Didn't expect that for a Motul oil.

Bailes - i am stumped with that comment as well. ESP since the viscosity levels or index numbers puts the oil dead on for a 50W.

Always stout!

This sample was posted by @SubieRubyRoo , with very similar results: https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/foru...e/motul-4100-power-15w50-voa#Post4981524

I am willing to try this oil, but i think that [email protected]°C might be a bit overkill. I think i will stay with my HDEO choice instead, it has almost the same add pack and i can get it cheaper from 20m of my door.

Leo, I was going to post that as well. This stuff is super thick, and looks like I should have shaken my jug a little longer before sampling since it was done in January '19. I can sub this in my hydrostats in my ZT mower it's so thick!
