120 VI, a nice, neat divisible number to appease our fingers and toes. Given that arbitrary possibility, and putting on our tin foil hats, how close to that number do you think was determined scientifically vs. economically after the Mobil, Castrol ruling? Maybe that number was 10 points lower scientifically but concessions were made to protect Mobil’s investment? Who knows? What I do know is the process that ruled in Castrol’s favour by NAD is much the same for GRPII oils. So that brings me to my next question, do you think oil manufacturers are chasing their tail a bit to meet the Synthetic price point and losing some flexibility in blending? Meeting the SN-GF5 spec, especially the Seq. IIIG, seems to dampen any major advantage GRPIII oils claim to have. That to me is what matters, not some marketing mumbo jumbo. Your thoughts. Tangents welcome. Disclaimer: I'm not an oil expert, more an oil embryo working on my featherweight status.
