I know a few people looked into this when it came out a while back, but they've since changed formulas and released several (confusingly labeled) tiers of oil.

I wasn't able to find any specs on their website, so I sent them an e-mail requesting more information, and they sent the following:

Viscosity @ 40°C, cSt
58.3
Viscosity @ 100°C, cSt
10.6
Viscosity Index
175
Pour Point, °C
-51
Noack Volatility, %
6.2
HT/HS Viscosity, cP
3.6

Now, it should be noted that forgot to mention 5w-30 and they didn't specify if it was 5w-30 or something else. I also forgot to ask the TBN, so I sent them a followup e-mail for more details.

Regardless, has anyone had any experience with recent G-oil formulas? Do you have any UOAs or VOAs?

What is the attraction of these special oils?

I would rather just go with local Walmart available oil stock and change it often...meaning Mobil 1, etc. not no-name oil.

Well, this particular one is bio-based / biodegradable. Basically it makes me feel better about getting 17mpg, lol.

Just throwing the information out there for anyone interested.
