Originally posted by OneQuartLow: Good links, Ken. Oz, API does work with Japan's auto manufacturers, just as with the US's & others, so even if the standards are different the specs may be largely the same. Reading a bit more on the ISO thing makes me think the different standards bodies are all going to be assimilated into one WTO-centric standards publisher (ISO) with national representation & manufacturer input. Somewhat Orwellian but it makes sense from the big business point of view: One set of international standards with API at the helm for petroleum. David
quote:I don't think I said that. In fact, I'm still trying to figure out what I said that sounded like that. Where's my coffee? Just meant to say the standards are similar under the covers. They test similar qualities though some have different limits (i.e. API Phosphorous limits for our CAFE). The part about worldwide/ISO petro standards came from my searching the last few days. I posted a bit about it in another standards thread and will try to come up with a summary as I put references together (unless someone here is kind enough to lay out the situation). David
So, David, are you saying that JASO is lagging behind along with API when it comes to standardization, quality, etc?
