Are you getting spec and grade mixed up?
Their spec will be a grade of oil with their blend of additives.

As to wether it is any better than a non branded oil is a different matter, probably better to leave that to your brief in the court case following your waranty claim.
NO!

As long as you use oil to the specification they stipulate the warrenty will be valid under UK/EU law.

TCW3 etc is a SPECIFICATION not a grade!!!

At the very least you would be as well to measure the quantity of fuel required to completely refill the tank (having started with a full tank) and compare to the total fuel usage reported by floscan.

I can understand your reluctance, but... if this gives you the same results again everyone will say you tested it wrong again... if you get different results it must call into question the validity of ALL the original results.

Proof reading is only useful for spotting typos. Since people are questioning the results it might be better to get the experimental design right in the first place.

So why do you need to redo the test then?
