There have been several question asked of me on this board. Instead of me trying to find all of them I will try to answer them here. I will also eat a little crow. Someone asked me what the ZDDP and PHOS levels were on our Long Life 15W40 oil. ZDDP is 1,200ppm and PHOS is 1,000ppm. Someone asked about the NOACK % off on our 10W30 synthetic oil. With the SJ rated oil it was 4.4% but with the new SL rated oil it is 7.8%. I will talk more about tech sheets later on this post. Wal-Mart oil. Now I eat crow and plead for forgivness. There was a company called Speciality Oil in Shreveport that was purchased by the old Quaker State Company. Speciality Oil produced an oil called Lubriguard that was very popular in the South and Southeast. They also had blending plants in San Antonio and Alabama. After Quaker State purchased Speciality oil, they started making Wal-Mart oil. When Pennzoil bought Quaker State this continued for awhile. A decision was made that we did not need the Lubriguard product in our line so we sold the plants in San Antonio and Alabama to Warren Oil Company. So, the Wal-Mart oil is made by two different companies. The old Speciality plant in Shreveport and by Warren oil (I think they have 5 plants in the Southeast now). They also still make the Lubriguard product and if you live in the South, you have probably seen this product. I do not know how the distribution is laid out or which one sends oil to Canada. That is Wal-Mart's call. Technical Sheets: Let me start this by saying that we live in a country where anyone will sue you if you smile the wrong way. It is no secret and I have tried to lay it on the line, that in this business it is all about market share and volume. Dog eat dog, as they say. I am now going to talk about passenger car oil only now and what the industry considers the BIG 4. That is Pennzoil, Quaker State, Valvoline, and Castrol. These 4 brands control and dominate the market share in the USA and we will use anything to gain an advantage over the other. Example: We use to state all technical data on our spec sheets. We ran the NOACK % off test and it showed 7.8 and we published it. One of our competiors pulled some of the product off the shelf and tested it to read 8.1. Guess what, they sued us for false advertising. So a decision was made by our legal department (and I'm sure other oil companies legal departments) to just list that we meet the current specs. This is sad, but it is the life style we live in. Now one might ask why do companies like Schaeffer's, Red Line, Amsoil, and a few others have more detailed spec sheets. Basically the BIG 4 do not care about these companies. They are not a threat to our over all market share and volume. But you can be sure, if any of the above became a threat to any of the BIG 4 in any way, and they smiled the wrong way, they would be in court. And after they were in and out of court enough, their legal departments would say, change those spec sheets. I do not like this approach and I'm sure other oil company reps don't like it either. But that's the legal, corporate way of doing things and I guess we will just have to live with it. Now I did not list Mobil 1 in this catagory, but they are the big dog when it comes to synthetics. I firmly believe one reason there is not more data on the new SuperSyn is, if they smile the wrong way, you know who will sue them.
