    LL17FE+, LL14FE, API SN Plus, API SP

    Based on the above, can we deduct that API SN plus oil may not give wear protection as good as API SP or LL14FE oil? Except perhaps certain oil that may also straightaway pass newer standard without major reformulation? Just undecided whether to use API SP on GDI engine with timing chain will...

    Motul Gear 300 is having high VI that makes it less drag like 75w85, however on differential application which one is better? Are they both less durable compared to Mobilube SHC 75w90 that is rated million miles?

    SN PLUS: Mobil 1 EP 0w20 Yes - 5w20 No

    Interesting that only the Mobil 1 EP 0w20 meet SN Plus while 5w20 is not. I though sometimes back M1 release statement that most of their oil has no LSPI issue, but without SN Plus seems 5w20 may not be as robust as 0w20 on LSPI issue.

    Since the old Motor Protect does not really give any MPG improvement, I recently tried the Molygen Motor Protect. It seems the effect is slightly better than Lubegard Biotech EOP on maintaining lower oil temperature at light driving. Just wonder if anyone else tried on this Molygen Motor...

    It is overwhelming and confusing to see the product comparison especially with upcoming SN Plus certification. So it seems PUP is no longer the best for turbocharged engine due to LSPI issue.I am wondering if for non turbocharged engine, whether A5-12 cert on PUP kinda proof that the oil is...
