Sprintman, " Checkout Delvac 1. Like a good Burgundy/pino should smell for those into wine? In otherwords stinks like the barnyard. This post really is 'off topic' "

Hey, nothing wrong with that smell as long as you step in it! [Big Grin]

The sweetest smelling oil I ever came across was the 0W30 Gulf-II synthetic. Now I don't know if this is true, but someone from the refinery told me they put perfume in it top attract female cumstomers.

Now just think about this for a minute. A beautiful woman with sweet smelling motor oil on her body. Could a guy really ask for more?????

[Happy]

most of the smell comes from the additives, but the amount of Sulfur in the base oil can vary it significantly.
If you look at the Sulfur in the Chevron and Excel (Pennzoil) base oils, it is less than 6 ppm. Exxon 100 LPSN is 3900 ppm. Mobil at 2500 and Shell at 1700.

It is no longer available, at least in NA. Was made in the 1983-1984 time frame.
