From what I've read, it's just Warren Oil Company's low end synthetic that is also sold at Walmart. Just used it for the second time in my 530. Changed at about 4800mi. Going to send a sample to Blackstone Labs and see how it stands up. Car has 183k. Averaged 860mi/week on the last change.

I haven't heard complaints but I also haven't spent much looking into it. Amazon has another brand which is the oem for subaru and is similar in price. May try it sometime.

Pulled samples at 183k and 188k and sent to Blackstone. Both came back with glowing results with additional life left and low number on the various wear indicators.

You want the actual numbers? Said a couple posts back that they both came back with glowing results. Can probably upload the PDFs.

I’ve used Warren synth for about a decade now. Good oil as far as I can tell
