[quote=jbutch]Quaker State Euro L 5w-30 seems different than the Pennzoil Euro L though. 13 cst @ 100c isn't even a 30 grade. I'd be curious to see a voa of that oil [Linked Image] That QS PDS also shows the 0WXX testing temperatures for CCS and MRV even though it is supposed to be a 5W30. And the VI is also crazy high for a 5W30. Lots of little weirdnesses in that PDS! Not that I doubt the info, but the 29C delta between the D92 and D93 tests for flashpoint is eye opening...

And strangely, none of which can be verified on the BeVo website.

Interesting, why do you say that? They the tests are performed using two different methods and equipment, and neither test has high precision.

This has been discussed before, when it was first brought to my attention I had bought some M1 5W30 ESP and was super impressed by its 250C+ flashpoint...until I realized it was a D92 result and not comparable to the D93 numbers many other oil makers gave. I had thought that 15-20C deltas were common and 29C really caught my eye...that's an over 50F difference! Of course, I also now realize that flashpoint is not a huge concern in engine oil as long as it's over 200C or so (D93). It's sort of a nothingburger spec that companies seem to toss out there as PDS filler and I had taken it to be a critical number that gave special insight into "better" oils...
