I will have a UOA on GTX HM 5w30 in October, from my mom's 94 Probe GT. It has been in her car since the spring, and will have roughly 2000 to 2200 miles on it by then. (lots of short trips)

Les, how about the 0w-30 from Germany? MSDS, and anything else you can get. Edit: Never mind re: MSDS--saw it in your other post. But what else can you get on this oil? Data specs? [ August 30, 2003, 03:47 PM: Message edited by: YZF150 ]
