▶ VLS, the Ver­i­fi­ca­tion of Lu­bri­cant Spec­i­fi­ca­tions, has an­nounced the out­come of a com­plaint about fully-syn­thetic 5W30 Hy­palube Evo, man­u­fac­tured by Granville Oil & Chem­i­cals. It had been al­leged that the prod­uct did not meet its stated NOACK volatil­ity mea­sure and that its claims for OEM spec­i­fi­ca­tions per­tain­ing to VW 504.00/507.00, PSA B71 2290 and GM LL– A/B–025 were un­fea­si­ble as no ad­di­tive pack­age was cur­rently avail­able to meet those re­quire­ments. VLS tested the prod­uct and found that it did fail to meet its claims. Granville Oil & Chem­i­cals co­op­er­ated fully with the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and has dis­con­tin­ued the prod­uct.
