Yeah, what does that mean? Rival oils show virtually no wear, but this is 8x better? Does that mean it actually build up material, rather than let it wear away?

I was hoping to get 300,000 miles out of my CRV engine, but with 8X the wear protection, I am now planning to get 2,400,000 miles out of my CRV engine.

It's the difference that seems to be getting lost on BITOG these days between specifications and performance. The licencing tests allow "x" wear in the sequence IV test, and Castrol produce 1/8 of the allowable wear (per Oz advertising). And there was a period when M1 didn't actually meet the specs...
