Mark: They should be posting the spec sheet soon, but I will try to answer your questions. For what this oil was designed to do, it will flow better than 5W30 Pennzoil in very cold temps. It will flow better than most oils at very cold temps, including Mobil 1. Here is basically what it is. It is a synthetic blend (Group II+ & Group III)that is loaded with poor point additives. Here are the cold temp properties. Pour Point in Centigrade QS Conventional -36 QS Winter -45 Mobil 1 -45 Pumpability @ -35c, in centiPoise (cP) QS Conventional 36,100 QS Winter 7,800 Mobil 1 10,700 Bottom line, it pumps better than Mobil 1 in extreme cold.

Hopefully the QS Winter will be on the shelves soon in your area. I don't know if Wal-Mart is bringing it in or not. I sold 20 truckloads this morning to two large customers that distribute in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota. It will be on the shelves up here in about two weeks.
