It says SM/CJ4, If I haven't already thrown the trash out I will pull the date code. But thats the best I can do for now.

Yeah that is important. I'd check that or call them. Only if you are that curious about it. Otherwise just run it.

If I don't have the bottle , I'll call the shop and get one from them doubt they have sold any since I bought mne. They can check their inventory on the computer. No worries of quality I dumped it In before I had the voa, I just wanted a baseline for the uoa two years from now.

Red Line has said "not for break-in" for many years on the bottles I've seen.

The moly being used again in this viscosity grade is interesting.

It does bother me from an honesty standpoint that they list API CJ4 because that limits the sulfated ash to 1.0%, and judging by the concentration of metallic elements I see here, I highly doubt its sulfated ash would be 1.0% or less.

The flashpoint is much lower than I expected but perhaps the test result is in error.
