Since past decades, engine manufacturers have been determined to make smaller and compact engines. Due to this very reason engines have been subjected to smaller lube tanks, increased loads, high soot etc., Hence Baseoil alone cannot meet satisfactory engine performance criteria. Irrespective of Group I, 2 or 3, it is mandatory that engine oils shall be blended with quality additive packages at recommended treat rates to meet specific API grades.
Selection of specific Baseoil groups depends on SAE grade of engine oil to be blended.

TBN= Total base numbers. This the ingredients that make up oil. Base stocks and additives.......you have to have additives to make the product complete and proform well ....just saying.

"they do not want any additives in their engine oil" - are we talking automotive? You'll have to explain to them why additives are needed: in automotive engine oils it's the prevention of wear and engine cleanliness - those are performance additives. But almost EVERY oil also contains rust and oxidation inhibitors. Good engine oils have Viscosity Index improvers. Then pour point depressants... Therefore without additives they will have wear (particularly on the valve train), deposits (also on piston rings), rust, fast thickening of the oil and acid build up, difficult starting in cold weather etc. Perhaps the customer heard that adding additives into fully formulated engine oils is a bad idea (oil companies' view) and he misunderstood it.

Look at it another way, for purely academic discussion, a better analogy
1. Plain rice with masalas
2. Basmati rice
And the answer is yours.

For what Viscosity grade and what make Year of the engine? Does it need to meet ACEA or ILSAC specs or any OEM specs? Either way you can't use 100% Group II or III blend stock with no additive content!

In this 21 century Engine oil and Lubrication technology,you are talking about API:SA/CA oil? I suspect the customer in question is NOT dealing with PMS or AGO aspirated engines,perhaps he is dealing with small mowers,scooters and lawn mowing machines that requires NON-DETERGENT engine oils.

well extending this discussion further, if I intent to make a API CF-4 SAE 20W50 oil for diesel engine trucks and light marine engines, which base oil group I should go for.... Alot of people advise me that Group II SN500 with a good additive package and dispersant Plus VI improver can be a good recipe of making such oil.
Whats your guys take on it.....

A great deal depends on the engine type and what load the engine is subjected to, what fuel s being used and the environment if the engine is operating in
