Gman II, since you asked me specifically about why

I thought M1 could be better, Molekule helped quantify chemically some of those thoughts.

I'm sorry I couldn't get back to you with a more chemically adept answer !

Sorry I had to find another place to post it. Seems the range controller just stopped all gunfighting, darn. I was just brushing up on my formulas !!!!

You asked;

"Specifically, what is it about Mobil 1 that doesn't "impress" you? "

Molakule's answer is perfect;

" What could be better about Mobil 1? Here is my shopping list. The use of more esters, a longer lasting DD package, a better and more long-term AW/EP additive package, a lower volatility mix of varying POA viscosities."

DD = dispersant detergent package.

I'm with Mola on that.

Hey Mola and Quad which is it volume or density or is there anyway we can shrink people small enough to make a "journey into the journals" with very small micrometers and find out !

Quad your mixing up (obfuscating) the term UOA again be "pacific" dude.

In all seriousness board moderators and participants please let this discussion continue without the personal attacks so we can play out the science. If Quad is honest( willing to educate and learn ) we can all learn something. I can't do the math and I want to see where the math takes us.

Sorry Tony I couldn't resist !
