yessir.

Quote:
Polyalphaolefin (PAO) = American Petroleum Institute (API) Group IV base oil
Synthetic esters, etc = API Group V base oils (non-PAO synthetics, including diesters, polyolesters, alklylated napthlenes, alkyklated benzenes, etc.)
Hydrocracked/Hydroisomerized = API Group III base oils
anything groupIII hydrocracked is not a true synthetic though youll see a lot of products that are made from this, say "syntheic " on it. Usually itll follow up with "technology" or something like that but it confuses a lot of people.

The lubro moly used to be group IV but they switch to group III a while ago. Its still decent oil even as a group III. A lot of group III's packages are very good these days..you engine isnt gonna blow up running even crappy tire gold.

but obviously the group IV and V are better.

bobistheoilguy if you want to read more about oil than you thought was possible.

I've been using Lubro Moly for years now... it's always served me well... I even sent my last sample in to Blackstone and even after 8,000km on it in my twin turbo motor they said the oil and motor are wearing perfectly fine.

I know everyone has opinions about which oil to use and which is better, but almost none of you actually take the time and spend the money to see how it is actually doing in YOUR motor.

Also, in europe grade III oils are not considered synthetic at all. Bmw oil is grade III and it is not labeled as synthetic.

I also have been using Lubro Moly for a long time. I than ripped apart my motor to put a cam in and after 326K it looks Brand F@cking new and my compression is still exactly as it was from factory.
