Thanks so much for posting that information. Is there a side by side comparison chart somewhere you could post?

This is the only place I've found Mobil make mention of Mobil1 NOACK numbers.

The only place I've ever seen a 'chart' for comparison purposes is on the many Amsoil independent sites, which I'm not going to rely on. There's no telling how old the information is, and I have no reason to believe anything Amsoil has to say about Mobil1.

There's no reason to use a 10W-40 oil in anything besides a lawn mower. You don't want an oil that's thicker at startup than a 5W. If you live in a very hot climate and temps never drop below 70 degrees, it won't make much difference. But up north, stick with 5W & 0W where allowed by the application.

A 5W-40 would also be good for a turbo application, as by the time it shears, it'll be down to a 30 anyway.

Mentioning old information, the link you posted regarding Mobil 1 Noack volatility numbers was dated January 29, 2010, three years ago.

After watching this video, I will never purchase a product from Royal/Dutch/Shell, (which owns Pennzoil). I'll walk before I purchase any Pennzoil product, ever. There are many video's on YouTube regarding the conduct of Shell Oil in Nigeria.
