    VOA for QSAD 10w-40?

    Non-energy conversing oil weights usually seem to have a lower Moly content than their thinner kin. For my application (m/c) this is good. However, I am trying to find a VOA for Quaker State Advanced Durability in 10w-40. If anyone has, please post. It seems most SN oils have around double...
