What is wrong with it? Tbn is on par with Amsoil.

I noticed the Moly is about the same with M1 5-30EP, but the Boron was higher with the M1. Also the TBN is a tad higher with Edge than M1. What do you think about the differencies?

There is something in the oil we are not seeing in the VOA. You don't have a TBN of 11.5 without having something special in the mix.

That's a really thin 30-grade... on the verge of 20.


BTW, I don't see anything wrong with that TBN. That's actually higher than GC's TBN.

I was hoping Calcium/Phos/Zinc would be a little higher.

It is way on the low end on Viscosity.

Judging by the different specs that they meet, I'd say they're pretty far apart.

Hate to be blunt, but i don't see whats so different between this, and regular Syntec 5W-30. Check out some recent VOA's of Syntec 5W-30:

From 2006: http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubb...true#Post478791

From 2007: http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubb...true#Post884647

In those, the additive levels, TBN, and visc. are almost the same. I'm hoping the difference is in the base oil, which would need to be stouter to survive 15k miles they guarantee.

There can be alot of things that could make this a great oil that can not be seen in a VOA.

UOAs will tell some more about how this oil is.

Agreed. It's just a bit premature to judge this oil. I'm withholding judgment on this oil until I see UOA's and more VOA's on this oil. I'd like to see a lot before making a decision..
