Don't know but if you take a look at the Amsoil site there's a chart of the volatility test done on several oils. It looks like Castrol GTX was the highest performing conventional out of the ones tested. I remember those old commercials where they used to cook it in a frying pan....

Anyway, keep in mind that the NOACK volatility test is done at 150-C (302-F). If the sump got up to that temperature you wouldn't have to worry about the oil because the bearings would be failing soon anyway.

I know synthetic oils have a lower-volatility than conventional oils. But are there any brands of conventional oils with a low-volatility?
Sounds like you might want a blend? Plenty of those around.

Yeah, if they hadn't disabled the image url I'd have done that too. :thumbsup:
