Motorcraft was a solid fuel economy oil a decade ago, This should be with a try. I would buy a case. If someone GAVE it to me I would run it without hesitation. Maybe the brothers to the North could chime in aboot TropArtic which is (or was) same - though I would be suspicious of those who cannot spell Arctic.

But I keep on repeating, with Valvoline Advanced 5W30 setting such a high bar for "Walmart" purchased oils,
Why buy anything else? Including RGT "flavour of the month"

Whereas many crack … P66 runs hydro process to make GII+ or GIII … so “Full Synthetic“ is probably just a better ratio to meet 120 VI or whatever they targeted like the cheap Dexos lubes do with EHC …
They manage to be low bid somehow 😷

CVX has a GII+ as well … suspect DS Pro is a stretch of terms as well …

I find this interesting. I’m running VAS 5W-20 SN PLUS in my Hyundai 2.4 GDI right now and at 3,500 miles into this oil change the oil still looks almost new in color. My previous oil changes I have used QSUD 5W-30 SN, Havoline ProDS 5W-30 SN, and PUP 5W-30 SN. At 3,000 miles all the previous oils would be very dark by now. So I’m not sure why the VAS 5W-20 SN PLUS still looks clean at 3,500 miles. This is the first SN PLUS oil I’ve used in the Hyundai, so I’m not sure if this is a result is VAS itself, or if this is a SN PLUS characteristic. This is also the first time this engine has seen 5W-20 besides the factor fill so IDK!
