I posted a few weeks ago how the new Valvoline syn power now say with max life technology. You can still find some of the older ones that just say syn power.. However I guess all the Valvoline full syn will now have max life technology.. Im not sure if it will have the seal conditioners b/c i didn't see anyplace it say about will helps stop oil leaks like they show on the max life blend... but look. LOOK at video and pics how they claim its 40% less wear the mobil 1 and tell me what you think? also what i find strange is they claim mobil 1 high milage didnt pass ISLAC GF-5 however they are right about dexos1 approved.. I saw the new max life syn power with max life tech say with the real dexos1 logo on the bottle. see however is this true what they are saying on the pic that shows all the marks valvoline max life full syn and mobil 1 HM ??? Like not dexos1 and not ISLAC GF-5 and all them other things?? LOOK AT RESULTS ON PIC BELOW and watch the you tube video if you wish.
