This is similar to before, but this time it's two different labs using the ASTM test protocols as indicated below .... Fuel Dilution/FTIR, +/- 20% Viscosity/ASTM D-445, +/- 0.70% TBN/ASTM D-4739, +/- 7% TAN/ASTM D-974, +/- 4% to 15% Water/ASTM D-4928, +/- 2% to 7% Elemental/ICP, +/- 20% Soot/FTIR, +/- 20% Solids/FTIR, +/- 20% Flash Point/ASTM D-92, +/- 18C Pour Point/ASTM D-97, +/- 6C VI/ASTM D-2270, +/- 0.70% Ash Content/ASTM D-874, +/- 9% to 20% Noack Volatility/ASTM D-5800, +/- 18.3% Oxidation/Nitration w/ FTIR, +/- 20% CCS Viscosity/ASTM D-5293, +/- 8.9% Tooslick www.lubedealer.com/Dixie_Synthetics

If the viscosity is +-.7% then the VI should be a lot higher than +-.7%. I trouble believing .7%. Are you sure it's not +-.7Cst
