Since Signature Series has half the NOACK %, it will also have 50% less chance for potential deposits.

For the record, Motorcraft 5W-20 synthetic blend has a very high NOACK in the 13-15% range.
Interesting. I tried to look up this value for Mobil 1 Extended Performance but their spec sheet did not seem to list it. Have you ever seen a Mobile 1 spec that include this value?
