This really shows where the priority on American oil spec's are !!!

API SM / ILSAC GF-4


Now look at the priorities of ACEA A3 (& A5); & compare it to the API / ILSAC GF-4 spec's.

Cliff Notes:

American Oil Spec's priority is for fuel economy.

Euro oil performance spec's: is engine protection (& just recently considering fuel economy).
