Here's a thread that talk about this oil in another forum : G37 Owners Must Read!!!: G-Series Engine, Drivetrain & Tuning: G35 Forums - NICOclub

Also, Here's a good pdf on NIssan's Patent info on the ester oil : https://publications.european-patent...=1980609&ki=A1

The name is incorrect at that price. It should read Ankle-Grabbing Engine Oil 5W-30,

After following this thread thru, I'm convinced the problem I'm having with start up on my 04 Quest is due to this specific problem...A lack of ester based oil. I have been using MB1 in the 3.5 since after breakin with no problems at all. The last two oil changes I have been using Pennzoil synthetic. And now I'm hearing a slight knock at start up. Sounds like marbles in a can for a second. I wonder if my 08 SpecV requires the same ester oil?

I hear ya

The G37 thread says this is a group V synthetic. Does anyone know if our cars come from the factory with esther oil in them? Do normal synthetic opinions apply, such as allowing seating to occur before switching from dino oil to synthetic?

AFAIK the Nissan Ester Oil pictured above is dino with synthetic ester-based additives to help out with keeping a good lube film on the VVEL stuff. Motul 300V is a Group V full-synthetic which is ester based, and is what I'm going to be switching to on my next change (I did my first change at about 1850 with the Nissan Ester stuff). Unfortunately, the Motul costs even a bit more than the Nissan stuff. Better value for the money though.

You know, this is what I thought as well ........ dino with ester additives. The G37 link in this thread stated group V synthetic, which I think is incorrect, unless you can classify as a group V synthetic as dino with additives.

If you're referring to early in that thread where someone says, "A little research shows that it's a group V synthetic.", I think they meant that a little research indicated that "ester" itself is a group V synthetic, not that the Nissan Ester Oil is all group V synthetic. It's a dino oil with esters added.
