I'm impressed with Joe's numbers as well, especially Moly & Zinc levels. However, his blend has an SUS Viscosity of 66-73 while TWS averages in the high 80s. I'm not sure about the significance of this difference or the difference in cold viscosity at startup between the two.

Liqui-Moly is supposed to be as good if not better than the Castrol. And I got four 5L jugs of it for $125.00 online. That's like the price of 5L total with castrol and our cars use about 8.5-9 per change..........or is that quarts? anyway definitely a great oil and way way cheaper.

Garage List
I only ever topped off with Liqui Moly or Total. Both are great but the Liqui Moly is the best to be bought at almost any price. I had NO oil consumption with it and cooler temps. Total ran cooler too but it was consumed.
