Default Did Sherwin change the voc for the exterior oil primer?

Just got a couple gallons for some pfj cedar clapboard and I thinned it as usual bc otherwise it seems like brushing tar. It seemed to be drying real fast and starting to drag. Haven't had that problem in previous years. Voc on the can states 317 g/l. I swear it used to be closer to 500. Or am I just plain wrong?

If it's the quick dry it's garbage. Goes on like pancake batter....the long dry is better but no idea about the voc content...

It is the long oil. I remember in years past not being able to put a ladder on it for sometimes 48 hours. Now in 6-8 hours it's good with a ladder that has a towel on the mits
