Bob thanks for posting but I thought you were going to start using some cheap 10W-30 dino instead!

Anyway, nice report as usual although the iron is a higher.
The VI is 157 which is not particularly high for a 0W-20.

Was this the new XTL version of this oil?

Just realized this report is not for your Honda so my iron comment doesn't apply.

I can say Fuchs GT1 0w-20 is the king of the low viscosity oil's.

Fuchs GT1 0w-20 A$89 for 4L.
Mobil1 0w-20 5L A$67 From ebay.
Not much different.I thought stick with fuchs 0w-20.I only change oil once a year and filter every 6 months.Half way through i have changed the engine oil filter on above UOA but didn't add any oil because i was little over filled the sump in the first place.

+1. Crazy oil. Always good results, impressive TBN retention. The numbers here for a brand new engine over the course of a year are very impressive.
