Never used it but I'm sure its at least decent but if it is not synthetic it will have a fair amount of vscosity index improvers. I would rather use a group IV synthetic.

Sounds like it would be too thick a grade, especially the 15W rating. Why not stick with 10W30 or 10W40?

+1 I also use the VR1 10W30. Unfortunately no one local carries in stock so I have to order off Amazon.

That is about what I paid last time on Amazon but I see they jacked their price to over $50 now. Guess I know where I will order from next time. Thanks!

Driven makes good products but, unless you are using large bearing clearances (greater than .0031 on rods or more than .003 on the mains, according to King bearings) a 50 weight oil is not needed or appropriate. A 10w30 or 10w40 is likely a better choice. Chuck
