I assume they are no longer usefull but are they still detectable in analysis? Is that why, I think you, said you can still have ZDTP in used analysis but it may not necessarily be active.

It has a VI of 250, no polymer VI improvers, HT/HS of 5+, Noack of <1%, Cp at -100*C of 2000, and a cSt at 100*C of 12.49. In addition, the oil smells like a pina colada and its color changes based on your mood when you put it in. Recommended change interval is 100,000 miles and it costs $63.00 per quart.
