I honestly don't know what others are using as a majority. (Maybe someone could create a poll?) I just know I would stick with LL-01. In a year's time I'll probably change my wife's oil again, and I'll be sure to report if it looked as thick as the stuff that came out this time.

I just checked the TBN numbers of Mobil 1 0w-40 and Motul 8100 X-cess 5W40. Mobil is at 11.8 and Motul is 10.1. It seems anything lower than 10 doesn't make the cut...
