I like the looks of it but I don't think you can beat M1 0w40 for price and availability, not to mention it is an outstanding product. Thanks for the VOA again!!

Not sure how accurate any of the additive numbers really are, figure a 10% to 15% variance?

Liqui-Moly doesn't put moly in their oils. This is nothing new.

A bit less boron than M1 0w40, but otherwise looks like a sufficiently stout oil.

All joking aside, this oil contains no moly, so which Liqui-Moly grades do?

I'd still run with their products if I wanted, just throw in a can of MoS2 if you feel the 'need'.

They do indeed make an oil that has there mos2 already in it, but I don't remember what it's called.

Never seen the green bottle before. Weird.

Typically the local NAPA has Synthoil Premium 5w40 (purple), Longtime Plus 5w30 (blue), and Synthoil Energy 0w40 (black). Some stock the MoS2 10w40 (silver) and Diesel High Tech 5w40 (indigo).

They can get the Race Tech 10w60 (silver) if you ask.
