The oil is not the worst oil I have ever seen. It depends on what I was running it in. It has a high volatility reading but was within "API expanded range for PCMO".
It is much easier to stick with the Major brands and forget it.
It doesn't look like too bad an oil really. Other than noack which isn't a huge issue, and its not like its outrageously awful (pittpenn anyone?). But for close to 10 dollars for 5qts you can get supertech oil from wm, or even vwb for close to that price. A few dollars more would get you motorcraft semi syn. So could you use it? Absolutely and it would probably be fine. But there are better oils available for the same price, or a negligible amount more. At that price I would use vwb myself.
Guys! The point is to define is it good oil or not?
Spectrol originally was an independent russian blender, small blender. Then Russian Delfin Group, who produces oil under Luxoil brand, bought Spectrol. In Russia we call blenders like Luxoil as "bodyaznick". Bodyaznick is a blender who does not look at high quality of finished products, who blends oils using any available base stocks and additives. IMHO In US Delfin Group has a contract witrh independent blender and produses Spectrol oils. Today they produce one level of quality, tomorrow - another. This is their stile. Thats all!
I can get this oil for 1.99 a quart at the bargain store not too far from me. So I looked it up. This is what I got.
It's all Greek to me.
You can get Peak Conventional oil at Big Lots for $1 a quart!
Peak Oil, bottled by Warren Nebraska, has a $2 rebate on each quart, up to 5 quarts.
IMO....$5 for 5 quarts of oil that is most likely the same as SuperTech at WM is a steal!
Why mess around with an oil your not sure of.....nor is anyone else positive about the quality....Go with the Peak Deal!
