10W-30 (ATM): API SN (Resource Conserving), SM…; ILSAC GF-5, GF-4…; ACEA A5/B5, A1/B1; GM LL-A-025, 6094M, 4718M; Ford WSS-M2C205-A; Chrysler MS-6395"

Nowhere does it say they meet the specification. That alone means you should not run it. they are recommending you use their oil, but do not say it is any good.

If the oil was good they would use

"Mobil 1 High Mileage 5W-30 synthetic motor oil meets or exceeds the requirements of:
ACEA A1/B1, A5/B5 API SL"

Why would you run an oil that does not meet the minimum specifications for your engine? Why don't they meet the specification and why do they try to BS you?
I highly doubt that they do not meet specs. Amsoil most likely does not want to spend the money to have it certified just so they can put a little label on it, when it will more than likely provide them little to no return on their investment.....
