The fact that Gp-3 base stock is superior to either Gp-1 or Gp-2 is intuitively obvious. The refiners managed to sell the idea to the API with minimum effort.

The issue is that the marketing pitch makes determining what base stock is used in in the oil that you buy difficult. There are significant differences in performance between Gp-3 and Gp-4 and in some applications these differences are critical.

Some Group V are esters and can be from non-petroleum sources such as Renewable Lubricants vegetable oil based motor oils (and I guess Castrol-R).
