I believe there is already a thread on this. Something about them finally meeting API specs and etc....

The HPS line is NOT API licensed. Their regular stuff is.

There is a thread on EVERYTHING here... duplicates are bound to happen.

Well they already claimed their normal SL stuff already had higher than SM levels of zinc. Find me one VOA or UOA that shows that. Ha!

The 5W20, 5W30, and 10W30 have 1000ppm of ZDDP while the 10W40 and 20W50 have 1200 ppm of ZDDP for the regular RP

OK this time I did find some of these readings approaching 900-1000. Never could before. Seems like the thinner stuff comes up in the 800-ish range.

I had expected the error to center around the stated 1100 ppm and am a little disappointed that I dont see that.

If anyone wants to donate to the cause, I'll buy a bottle of the new HPS and send it off for a VOA.

That is not the same oil. I was referring to a VOA of the HPS.

The guys at two different AutoZones had no clue what I was talking about when I asked today.
