I have two five qt. bottles of Castrol Magnatec full synthetic 5w-20 oil on the shelf but I'm not sure it meets the MS-6395 standard. Will this be a no-no to use?

Looks like it exceeds the spec. Other forums report that this is a pretty easy spec to meet. Castrol Edge is fine at 5W-20, so hard to think this wouldn't be.

That’s what I was figuring. A little bit reluctantly. Sounds more like political posturing between a few choice companies being in cahoots.
I just had a chance to check out the manual and it’s only a recommendation not a requirement. If anybody has any background on this specification, I’d be interested in knowing about it.

far I recall, it meets spec, but is not a true Grp5 synthetic. kinda like a hybrid. kinda. with some fancy molecular tech words added in for good measure..lol.
I wouldnt expect it to perform like a true synth oil, but you should be ok with it for a Daily.
