What's the difference between say, Valvoline advanced, Valvoline synpower, valvoline HM, etc etc. obviously the high mileage one is for high mileage vehicles, etc. but what about the other two? Thanks. ****** Nvm. They just changed the name, lol*******

*The Valvoline Advanced 5W30 may be the best over all synthetic D1 / Gen 2 rated oil at it's price point (especially for GDI engines) . It's not necessarily a long drain oil - however it is a very fine oil none the less !

Synpower is discontinued and if you find any, it's old, outdated stock. Advanced is the latest one. Please type the word instead of using nvm - which I'm guessing means nevermind, which few here can translate. Most messageboards need very simple acronyms, or the entire word spelled-out.

They did more than just change the label they reformulated it. Couple things I remember is they lowered the sodium drastically and added titanium. What they did behind the scenes I have no idea. 2013 http://www.pqiamerica.com/March2013PCMO/valvolinesyn.htm 2018 VOA https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/foru...oa-valvoline-synthetic-dexos1-gen-2-5w30

Valvoline Synpower is an older version of Valvoline Advanced Synthetic. Valvoline Advanced Synthetic is the most current fomulation made to meet the most common current specifications. Valvoline Full Synthetic with Maxlife is Valvoline Advanced Synthetic with additional seal conditioners and detergents. I agree with @ChrisD46 about Valvoline Advanced Synthetic being the best oil available for the price. Over the past year I have purchased VAS 0w40 to use in a Dodge Sprinter, VAS 5W40 MST to use in an Audi Allroad, and VFSML 0W20 to use in a Subaru Outback and Hyundai Accent GDI. I am happy with everything I have gotten from Valvoline to include two free t-shirts.
