Re: Engine oil

A buddy of mine that works for one of the majors just got done doing third party testing against Mystik. He rarely bad mouths his competitors, but he said it was so bad it should be illegal to sell.

Re: Engine oil

There are many different levels of ZDDP quality. So quantity is only one small part of that equation. Chemistry is also important. And, ZDDP is only part of the much larger picture from an antiweear perspective. Granted, I'm not a fan of the Polaris oil, I don't think it's all that great either.

Base oil VI before polymers, VI improver polymer shear strength, the various molecules chain length. And on and on. There are thousands of variables in an engine oil.
