Maybe I'm just skeptical... but if MV oils cause sludge, how come Saab has not issued a TSB telling everyone to stop using them? They are paying for an awful lot of pan cleanings and engine rebuilds these days. If it was as simple as "don't use MV oil", I think they'd have a handle on it. You are correct about MV oil not always providing the protection we need, but only in a couple of limited applications. At the race track, when engine starts are minimal in number and temperature range, straight oil is needed. On the dyno with a high HP motor, straight oil is needed. On the street, where frequent starts occur in temps from 0F or less to 100f or more, where trips are often short, or long, or mixed, but rarely at full throttle, MV is the only thing that saves your engine.
