I'll stick to castrol mercon v or valvoline's blue bottle. They've been very hit and miss every few months we get another invoice telling us "this now meets this standard" or "immediately discontinue using 'product x' in 'car x', it's not very assuring" I don't like valvoline's maxlife line very much. Frankly anything with a seal sweller is just asking for more trouble.
