Originally posted by Bob A.: I bought 6 qts. of M0504... about two weeks ago. Just checked the color yesterday and reported my "findings" in a different GC thread on BITOG. I mentioned that it had a green tinge (hint of a green tint) at the top of the sample I poured in a clear plastic cup. The bulk of the sample was (is) definitely amber. My sample looked the same under flourescent lighting as it did in outdoor, natural lighting. I assumed I had the new, amber GC, but PSCHOLTE said that with the green tinge it should be the original green stuff. I sniffed it like a wine steward samples a vintage wine. I didn't think it had a "stinky" (stanky?) aroma as was earlier reported by others to be characteristic of the amber version. To me the oil I bought had a very light, sweet, mint-like aroma. But what do I know of smells? I've suffered from hay fever for over 40 years -- especially during the months of May and June!!! This year is no exception either. However, I think the M0504 batch number would indicate that it is the amber GC ?????

Originally posted by kttymau: went back out and looked; all of mine is "M0504" I stopped in to a couple different AutoZones the last few days, none of them even stocked Syntech 0W30, went back over to the original store where I found it and bought what they had left (6 more quarts). Please don't tell my wife...
