    MB229.71 (0/5W-20) and VW508.00/509.00 (0W-20) physical and chemical requirements shown below (including Noack):

    I have test reports for 0W20 and 0W30 on the OM 646 engine, which is part of the MB 229.71 specification. Yes, 0W30 shows less wear. But both oils are far from the wear limit.

    M1 ESP 0W-30 vs M1 ESP x2 0W-20

    Castrol Magnatec Professional E 5W-20 (Ford 948-B)

    this castrol has only Ford approval. But basically Ford specs are based on API/ILSAC or ACEA specs plus some in-house tests or more severe limits of API/ACEA tests. You know Castrol has strategic partnership with Ford and I think this is Castrol decision to show only Ford 948-B on this oil. No...

    To make it clear-price for VW oil approval

    If redline wants to have VW 504/507 approval it should buy all components ( base oils, viscosity index improvers, additive package) that tested in original formulation. No possibilities to change anything in formulation. You should buy PAO, approved group III, expensive VII and Package with...
