Well as rumored earlier this year, its about to be officially announced that the Jan 2016 GF-6 roll out, will be delayed until Jan 2017, as the industry couldn't get all of its ducks in a row, because of all the new changes & test protocols needed to verify the new tests. The complete story as it now stands here. GF-6 Delayed Again
Right now it looks like the next HDEO PC-11 offering will be around the beginning of 2016 & because of yet to be developed testing protocals, ect, GF-6 gas engine oils offerings will we pushed back to maybe early 2017, with Two categories, like GF-6A thats backwards compatable & GF-6B, the newer lower viscosity won't be backward compatable with older engines, so its likely to cause some confusion in the market place & if used will likely cause damage in some older engines whos oil pumps can't supply enough volume of the newer lower viscosity engine oils.
Just how the containers are to be labeled to minimize consumer confusion, is still being debated.
EDIT: GF-6 Packaging input by Lube Report. http://www.lubesngreases.com/luberep...ecs/-6076.html
Lubrizol has created a GF-6 website for us to click around on, that's trying to capture all that's going on with the development of GF-6 lubrication here. EDIT: Link removed 5/1/2016 because Security Essentials detected the link is now infected with 3 versions of malware Exploit!!!! :HTML/Axpergle.AL, :JS/Axpergle :JS/Axpergle.BO, so if any of you have recently clicked on/used this old link, perform at least a quick security scan, better a Full scan & remove any Exploit malware found right away. I'm going to inform the Lubrizol website of the infection, as it was a clean link when put up back in 2014.
GF-6 & PC-11 input from Infineum. Looks like a lot of industry foot dragging, table pounding & foot stomping is going on & GM is at it again, muddying up the water by striking off on its own with updated Dexos specs, before all the dust has settled & everyone has agreed on a GF-6 specification.
Lots of lubrication dust ups in the making, all of which are likely to confuse the general public about which lube their vehicle should use. North American specification update - June 2015
