    Boron Additives

    On this white paper about boron if I read correctly it implies it doesn't require heat to bond with metal? However this implies that boron DOES require heat? <a href="http://www.machinerylubrication.com/Read/1406/extreme-pressure-additives"...

    Oil quality & heat cycles

    I've read that motor oil/gearbox oil may not be working at optimal levels until it's gotten hot & cooled a few times.. eg certain additives not coming "to life" until after a few heat cycles. Is this accurate? Thx!

    I believe the VW G 052 726 A2 specified for my car is thinner than Pennzoil. 6.5cSt versus 9.3 cSt
