    2006 Triumph Daytona 675.

    Take a look at the Yamaha 2006 YZF R6(R6S). It raised the bar for middleweights.

    Mobil 1 5W30 Synthetic (Katrina Blend)

    Good question, the tech I spoke with at Mobil said it was a "minor tweak" due to shortages incurred by the hurricanes. Of course this is just one VOA of one quart bottle.

    Response from Mobil....Hurricane formulations?

    Just for information I sent a virgin sample of the M1 5W30 synthetic "hurricane blend" to Blackstone today. I suppose this will be the new formula after API certification. Will post results ASAP.

    Mobil 1 Fe is NOT Fe wear

    Why does it only show up as higher FE. If it's actually wear caused by some deficiency in M1's add pack or baseoils then why don't we see an increase in other wear metals. I don't know I'm just asking. I tend to believe the answers Buster has provided are correct.

    M1 and Fe -additives?

    Makes me realize how important trending is in oil analysis. You really need to establish a baseline.

    The new GC?

    I've kinda been out of the loop on the GC scene lately. I may need an alternative if the M1 EP doesn't perform as advertised. So I still have an interest in the product. Here in Pensacola at least two AuotZones still have the 04 stock on the shelf and I've yet to find any of the 05 variety. I...

    Synergyn/Redline blend?

    What is the factory recommendation? Didn't notice this was your first post, welcome to BITOG.

    Synergyn/Redline blend?

    IMHO I wouldn't mix these oils. Both are excellent oils on their own. No need to play chemist. You may even downgrade performance/protection by doing so. You didn't specify engine type or warranty status but unless it's spec'd for 5W20 the GC 0W30 usually runs well in most all applications where...

    Which Mobil 1 has moly in it?

    You can look at VOAs of practically all of the (USA) M1 lineup in the BITOG VOA library (Virgin Oil Analysis section).

    Toyota Echo, 5w-30, Toyota Fill, 2113 miles

    Never seen that much boron in an oil. Good luck with the new Yota.

    Which Oil?? Help a newbie out huh???

    When you get ready for synthetic, check out Synergyn. The LTS 3W30 or their 5W30. Both are excellent oils for high horsepower engines.

    schaeffers 5w30

    I ran Schaeffers 5W30 Blend in a new 05 Toyota 4Runner V6 for 3010 miles. With only 4500 miles on a new engine it still had single digit wear. Iron 9 Copper 6 Lead 2 IMHO this is the best blend on the market.

    ZDDP- Bad for aluminum engines?

    Interesting article, Fuchs is ahead of the game here. Their Titan 0W20 line has no ZDDP. More emphasis on base stocks for protection and less on certain additives may be the smarter approach. But then again there are alot of aluminum engines on the road today with excess of 150,000 miles that...

    Exxon 5W-20, 4800 miles, '02 Honda Si UOA #4

    Since Mobil is using sodium in their 5000/7500 line of oils it's very possible the Exxon lineup formulation contains sodium as well. Wear numbers certainly don't reflect a problem. A VOA of the 5W20 would be my next step.
