My biggest concern is that there might not be enough detergents for everyday use. Any thoughts?

Isn't Mg considered a detergent? I see it replacing Ca on a lot of new formulas lately.

Here's a good discussion (educational) thread on detergents:

Nice moly, calcium and boron levels. Decent to high TBN.
Does this stuff meet API SM specs?? The reason I ask is the relatively low zinc & phos. levels (especially for a 'racing' labeled oil).
They seem to have been shooting for an SM rating with those two levels???

It looks like SL levels of ZDDP to me. Does Motul have a patented AW additive also that wouldn't show up on a VOA?

Well, I guess their claim that this oil "Exceeds All Standards" must have some truth behind it. Hence the relatively low zinc and phos levels.

BTW, I got 500 miles on this oil so far and one thing I noticed is that I had to readjust my shifting. Now I have to lift off the throttle a tiny bit earlier when I change gears because the engine is now easier to rev up. UOA in comming in about 6 months.

Motul 300V is a "racing oil".

I appreciate Indymac posting information about detergents. I have noted you doing that before and it is always so helpful. Reading the posts from 5 years ago is nostalgic in that so many topics were thoroughly discussed by wonderful minds, I think it is often forgotten or overlooked.

Not just a racing oil. I've investigated this and the oil is perfectly sutable for every day use, according to Motul themselves. I chose it because I have hard time staying below 3000 RPM.
