heres a VOA of it,,good [censored], wish they would have had more. Here we go: Red Cap SJ/CF RON: This is serviceable 15W/50 oil. The TBN was 12.1, a good, high starting point. No moisture or insolubles present. The 1-ppm iron isn't a factor and is probably from tank rust somewhere along the distribution chain. MI/HR ON OIL: MI/HR ON UNIT: DATE:2-4-08 ALUMINUM: 0 CHROMIUM: 0 IRON: 1 COPPER: 0 LEAD: 0 TIN: 0 MOLY: 76 NICKEL: 0 MANGANESE: 0 SILVER: 0 TITANIUM: 0 POTASSIUM: 0 BORON: 182 SILICON: 3 SODIUM: 7 CALCIUM: 2726 MAGNESIUM: 18 PHOSPHOROUS: 1137 ZINC: 1316 BARIUM: 0 SUS VISC. @210F: 85.2 Cst Visc. @100C: 16.81 Flashpoint: 470 Fuel %: —– Antifreeze %: —– Water %:0.0 Insolubles %:0.0 TBN: 12.1 TAN:

Yep, that WAS some good stuff. Just used up the last of my stash in my nephew's Suzuki Bandit. Guess I'll have to trust 'em on the "new" version, when they say "Mobil 1 15W-50 exceeds warranty requirements for gasoline engines where an API certified oil is specified. It meets: * API SM/SL * Requirements for Diesel Powered Vehicles where an API CF or API CD is recommended * Provides extra anti-wear additive for older vehicles Mobil 1 15W-50 is formulated with SuperSyn, an extra-high viscosity synthetic fluid, plus extra anti-wear additive to provide extra protection for severe service applications such as towing, hauling and racing. Mobil 1 15W-50 is recommended for high performance vehicles including turbocharged and supercharged engines where a thicker oil film is desired. Mobil 1 15W-50 is also recommended for older valve train designs that may benefit from a higher level of anti-wear normally not required for newer generation vehicles. Mobil 1 15W-50 will also provide better anti-wear protection for higher valve spring tensions in certain racing engines..

I bought a case 5-6 years ago from PepBoys with BOGO coupon in the calendar. I still have 1-2 quarts left in the garage, I think it's SL.
