Would this oil be suitable for use in our cars. It is not Dexos 2 or acea 3 spec but all other information seems like it would be a usable product

Nope. CJ-4 spec oils are not suitable. You need a low-ash oil. That will not work unless you want to start saving up for emissions equipment replacements.

I second that. It must meet either (or both) Dexos 2 or acea C3
Not suitable and that's coming from a guy who doesn't put all my marbles into a fancy sticker on the bottle.

Saps is too high even though it says low ash. Cj-4 gives it away.
