Sorry I thought those were interchangeable designations

that’s also the first amazon oil I’ve seen without API - SN+

Some of the designations may be interchangeable. Some different designations may actually be a better oil, but, I don't want to get into all that to avoid confusion. Just making a list the has both the MS-12991 and API SN, that way there is no question for those who may not know any better.

Slightly lower price per volume compared to the valvoline but I haven’t the foggiest idea what the performance track record of that oil is...anyone here have any objective testing with it?
I used this in my VW TDI it also meets the new-12991

I actually can’t find the MS-12991 on that Liqui Moly Diesel High Tech 5W-40
Checked the website too. Lots of VWs though.

Engine Oil With Filter 3.0L Turbo Diesel Engine (SAE 5W-40 Synthetic, API SN) 9 Quarts 8.5 Liters

^^^That's what I'm going to pay attention to.


If I find a deal on this oil they talk about here, I'll run it;

We recommend you use 5W-40 synthetic engine oil such as Mopar or Pennzoil Platinum Euro that meets FCA Material Standard MS-12991 and the API SN engine oil category is required
But I'm not going to pay a ridiculous premium for it. I'll stick with an API SN oil that will work in all of my rigs. And as they update and change certifications and engine oil requirements I'll keep going for the oil that will work in the majority of my rigs.

And currently while I still have one more 5 gallon bucket left that is Mobil Delvac 1 ESP.

Give it a few months. Fca till drop a tab saying go with the standard rotella t6 and that's what all the dealers will start using if they aren't already.

Mark my words. They did this with the last ecodiesel too, wanting a specific rarely mentioned standard then finally approved a normal diesel industry standard.

It looks like the only difference with the MS-12991 rating is that it is low ash which is designed to help with DPF issues. Regardless of what oil you use I would just change it earlier than recommended.
