Could you please do a chart using 5W-40 Euro oils?
I'm in FL, and prefer Ravenol VST, just interested to see where it ranks.
Good chart BTW, Thanks!

So how do I interpret this info? Which "won" the comparison?
How you would interpret this list? The oils on top are generally more resistant to shearing compare to oils on the bottom.
But I wouldn't call any oil on this list a clear winner because there are also differences in quality of VII (VM's).

Base oils generally do not shear by any significant amount unlike the VII's. but that also depends on VII polymer types used.
The resistance of VII's to shearing is pretty much dependent on quality of polymer additives, polymer structure, shape and strength of chemical bond.

Here's a very good Discussion amongst professionals what's good, better, best and info on VII, NOACK and much more.
