READ THE LINKED INFO THERES A TON OF RELATED DATA YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT
Six states have already taken action to protect their citizens from off-spec, potentially engine damaging motor oils. They have done so by testing products purchased from retail stores and ordering off the shelves and out of the state any motor oils that they find fail their labeled specifications.
"The retailers may not have known that these products are mislabeled and potentially damaging when used with the wrong vehicles," State Office of Weights and Measures Acting Superintendent Howard Pine said. "Now that these facts are known, any retailer who fails to remove these products from store shelves will face a penalty far greater than the potential profits to be gained by selling these products."

thats awesome... im glad the state governments step up to protect their citizens for things like this... for every guy that knows enough to know which oil to buy, theres atleast 1000 who dont, and those people dont deserve to be bamboozled by oil companies.

There's never enough money to build it right, but there's always enough to build it twice!

Doesn't look like it's any of the major oil companies, it's the 2nd and 3rd tier
companies that are diluting the oil with something inferior and cheaper.Then
bottle it and sell it at a nice profit.
