quote:I really don't understand your mumble-jumbo or the point you are trying to make, but, M1 T&SUV (aka Delvac 1) is a VERY highly regarded oil throughout the world. It's also dual rated for Diesel/Gas (diesel being primary purpose), in which it is very good at (GC is not), and last but not least, we know it is made with ~ 25 ester and the rest PAO....so yopu know exactly what you are getting. GC has definitely proven to be a top-notch oil, but so has Delvac 1. Disregarding viscosity, I would give the advantage to Delvac 1, just because of it diesel ratings, which makes it more versatile.

Oils which cannot be readily found on the store shelves are the ones to seek out; they are certainly the better choices. Common oils, which can be found practically anywhere, are of course boring and ineffective and show increased wear metals in UOA's. That's what makes GC so special, and such a great oil. It's hard to find. Sometimes AutoZone won't even have it on their shelves. Don't laugh, it's been known to happen, and it isn't pretty when it does. Remember, too, that no watermelon tastes as good as a stolen watermelon. Not encouraging anyone to shoplift, but I've often wondered how much better the UOA's would look if one were to "liberate" a few quarts of the elixer. Probably at least some better I would think...
