To make it more interesting, some of the manufacturers have changed their formulas over the years, and some of these comparison charts don't work!
The cst scale is the most scientifically accurate (it's a linear scale with a predetermined baseline), and a lot of the oils state the cst along with their own "weight". I've found Losi oils to be a shade lighter than Associated for the same "weight". Never used MM oil
