None of them clean IVD's. VME is a formulation using a unique detergent system and also has a low SA to help prevent IVD's. Looks anemic but it's not.Originally Posted by IgnatiusI think Valvoline Modern Engine is a carbon deposit cleaner, Valvoline Advanced Synthetic is a carbon deposit preventer.Originally Posted by busterIf I had to guess, the SA of this oil is probably around .8-.9. They aren't using a lot of MoDTC or any other visible metallic additives. As I said in another thread, this oil and Mobil 1 AP/EP are your best bet for GDI engines IMO.
agreed. Our Hyundai 1.6 T-GDI runs great on VME. I bought 10 jugs last year at AZ sale. I’m sad it’s no longer on shelves.
It appears weak on paper, but the engine is staying spotless and runs quiet.
