As long as there is still a buzz about this oil, and speculation about its continued or extended availability, I'll keep this table updated. I've included two more data fields in this one. I don't know what they mean yet. Still looking for trends. Please continue to post new numbers.

Well I went out and bought some German Castrol 0W-30 and thought I'd contribute to the lot number thread. These were purchased at 3 different AutoZones in Queens (NYC): 135-15 Rockaway Blvd, S. Ozone Park, NY M023386B TAG785 2347 M030426A T/W05482 1238 155-05 Northern Blvd, Flushing, NY M030426A T/W05482 1245 95-01 Northern Blvd, Flushing, NY M030426A T/W05482 1240 YZF150, did you send away for a VOA on lot# M030426B T/W0504821? I'll be putting this German Syntec into an '00 528i, and running it for 10K miles (currently doing an Auto-Rx treatment on it) Jason

Q1, yes, sampled and mailed. Stay tuned. Interesting that your purchase of M030426A T/W05482 1238 represents only the third "M" code, with the "A" character rather than "B" in the others.

Stopped by the AutoZone in Flushing, NY (was gonna take advantage of the buy 5 get 1 free offer) but alas, they only had 4 quarts of GC... the rest was yellow label [Thumbs Down!] Lot# M023386 B784 1858 Interesting that this lot number is similar to bottles found in Canada.

Did you check the bottom of the bottles?

I have a few numbers: M030426B T/W1240607 2321 M030426B T/W1240607 0_56 (I only had two bottles from this batch, and the number between 0 and 5 was not readable) This oil was bought in Ontario, Canada at Walmart and Canadian Tire. It is currently being used in a 1986 Olds Cutlass Supreme with a 305 Chevy V8 and approx. 123K miles.

somewhere in Jersey
Also have 16 qts of M023386B TAG785 with fill times of 2330,2334,2335 The AZ store have 6 qts of 2337 fill time on the shelf. IIRC, I still have 6 qts of M030426A T/W05482 but I have to look at fill time.
