The Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA) is an independent resource for information and insights on the quality of lubricants in the marketplace. Our mission is to serve the consumer of lubricants by randomly sampling and independently testing lubricants taken from the field. Test results are posted along with the brand names on the PQIA website. This webpage provides an analysis on the brand detailed below.

The following are the test results for the sample examined.

SAE 10W30 Motor Oil

Product: Super XX
Viscosity Grade: "10W30"
Labeling: "...requiring SB specifications..."

Manufactured By: New World Sales, Midlothian, IL

Purchased at: Munster, IN

Date of purchase: 11/15/2016

Test Results and Assessment:

The results of the tests conducted on this sample do NOT meet the SAE J300 specifications for the SAE Viscosity Grade listed on the product label, and are NOT consistent with the listed API Service Category. The Kinematic Viscosity @ 100°C is 74% lower than the minimum viscosity specification for this SAE grade. In addition, the organometallic additive levels in this sample indicate the product is NOT suitable for use in the majority of automobile engines currently on the road, and the high level of silicon in this sample indicate the product may be contaminated with abrasive material. Furthermore, the API Service Category listed on the product label is OBSOLETE and is not suitable for use in most gasoline-powered automotive engines built after 1951. Use in more modern engines may cause unsatisfactory performance or equipment harm. The label fails to give adequate warning of this limited use.

Use of this product in automobile engines will likely cause serious engine damage.

Note: Whereas the front label on the sample shows "Super XX," the back label shows "Super XXX."

Note: Although laboratory tests alone cannot be used to establish if engine oil meets an API Service Category, they can be used to determine if it doesn't.

  1. Standards, shown in yellow are established by API, SAE and others.
  2. Test Method for metal analysis is ASTM D5185.
  3. This specification is expressed to two significant figures, therefore results up to 15.5 are considered on specification.
