The specs are 3500 cP @-25C for the 5W and 3500cP @-20C for the 10W. 4500cP @ -25C is about right for the 10W. The value for the 5W is screwed up. I think we have seen questionable numbers from Shaeffers before [Frown]

That sounds reasonable. [Smile]

It's too bad the # 156 Moly Pure Synthetic 5/30 only comes in 30 and 55 gallon drums,,it has a HTHS of 3.8. I forget the VI at 100C but it's up there. It would probably run with near any 5/30 PCMO made just guessing

Al is running this oil, and I'm positive he didn't buy it in a huge drum like that.

If I remember correctly, Crazee Al bought hisself a 5 gallon pail of that stuff. [stretch] Still, I wish more Schaeffer Oil products (like their Soy Neutra #131C) came in gallon jugs ... just about the perfect size for whackos like us. [Wink] --- Bror Jace
