My issue with PP resides with the low P/Zinc levels. They are lower than other licensed GF-6 oils, such as Mobil 1.

Right, and the 100c viscosity? they pictured a 5/30 right? I should have added thin to the thread header.

TBN 8.4 must be some hidden magic sauce cause it's light on the loafer in Ca/P

If find it odd that they chose several high mileage oils but didn't choose PPHM to compare to the others, If you look at the new non-HM Mobil1 EP it seems to be running a little on the thinner side too.

If my memory is correct,I’m thinking Maxlife dropped the moly around 2012-13 maybe? It created a big fuss around here!

Yep when Maxlife dumped the moly a bunch of Jeepers were scarfing up the older stuff since it worked so well in the Jeep 4.0.

Real men driving legacy engines will soon have no where to turn but ACEA A3B4 for full strength SAPS engine oil.
