GF-5 Approval

Interesting article here in Lube Report about the approval vote of GF-5 and the ensuing work on API category SN. Seems the term “Resource Conserving” will replace “Fuel Economy” on the SN category for API-approved motor oils.

Might be me, but seems a tad disconcerting that a couple of the major oil companies had reservations about approving the category. With GM now going its own route with dexos, could we see the dissolution of ILSAC before a GF-6 motor oil ever sees the light of day?
