I'm looking for the pictures of the gc in a plastic cup with and without the flash. I saw the link somwhere, where it's green with the flash and brown without. I did a search and couldn't find anything. Anyone know where to find them?

This has gotten waaaaaaayyyyyy out of hand. I, like many have followed the story of GC from inception thru what is now a deeply disturbing path which I am convinced is leading us to the other side...where darkness reigns and madness is the requisite for entering the Kingdom of the Elf. Come on people! Arise! Awaken! It's motor oil for Crysakes!

[Welcome!] It DOES depend on the lighting. In broad daylight when I pour the GC into the engine it looks NEON green (kinda like the blood from the alien in the PREDATOR movies). Less light, less green. Are you trying to find out if you have the real GC? Any G04-earlier is the good stuff. Some of the earlier batches of G05 (elsewhere here) are also the GREEN.

Conclusion?

GC is a cloudy green, AC is clear amber.

It appears that the dye used in GC reacts to bright lights to give off the "green." I noticed that back when I used it. Now, if we could just see some equivalent pics of the new domestically made 0w30 that has the same ratings as GC.

I don't believe such an oil exists. The newest 0w30 still says made in Germany. We've yet to see proof that there has ever been Syntec 0w30 which says made in USA but also still passes ACEA A3, and the MB and VW specs that GC does.

Agree wholeheartedly, Pat!

Eddie, If I thought you meant that...why I'd...well, at least I would u-m-m-m...well I would...um-m-m-m, would you repeat the question? [Wink] PS A bright shiny Elfen Gold Star to the first person to spot a batch of GoGC with the Mercedes 229.5 qualification on the label.

Yes, I don't know what I was thinking. I meant the new "gold" GC. [Duh!]
