CONSUMER ALERT: This product is labeled as meeting API SB which is an obsolete specification. The API cautions this specification is "not suitable for use in gasoline-powered automotive engines built after 1951. Use in more modern engines may cause unsatisfactory performance or equipment harm."
It should also be noted that the high levels of iron, silicon, and lead found in this sample are unusual and concerning as they are typically indicative of harmful contaminants.
