    Mobil 1 0W30 Advanced Fuel Economy SP/GF-6A Cold Performance

    Great visualization, but video being 4 years old this isn't the M1 AFE I am questioning.

    Mobil 1 0W30 Advanced Fuel Economy SP/GF-6A Cold Performance

    I see -15 often, -23 sometimes, colder occasionally. 5W30 will be fine, but I figured why not 0W if I can. But I'm starting to see there is probably no point.

    Those are fantastic numbers for the 0W20, but I'm trying to stick with 30wt as per manual. If anything I'd do one of the 0W30 euro or ESP, or whatever, but I don't know much about how they differ. I noticed those are ACEA C3, and the manual calls for A5. It's a Hyundai GDI...

    I won't go below 30 weight, because our winter is not that extreme. I'm sure I'd be fine with the recommended 5W30 but I thought why not go 0W for the occasional extreme cold day around here.

    I understand, and I'm certainly not just talking about YouTube. But what spec will tell me which oil protects my valvetrain or rod bearings best, for example?

    Thanks for all the input everyone. By the way was anyone ever seen any graphs of CCS vs Temperature or MRV vs Temperature for a single oil? I'd love to see how much truth there is to the double viscosity for every 5C rule.

    What I meant by that, without mentioning any brands and turning this into a debate on which 5W30 is best, is that there are a few particular 5W30 oils that tend to top most oil comparison tests all over the internet, and they all have specs in the CCS 4000 @-30 and MRV 12000 @ -35 range.

    Yes I know. I tried searching and came up with nothing, then I came across it and didn't know how to delete my thread.

    MRV 18900 at 11°C above pour point. What do you think the MRV would be if the pour point was only 2°C away.

    Mobil 1 0W30 Advanced Fuel Economy SP/GF-6A Cold Performance

    I'm thinking that because of it's weak pour point I would expect M1 0w30 AFE to be around: CCS 6000 @ -35 and MRV 30000 @ -40 So is that really any better than a 5W30 with: CCS 4000 @-30 and MRV 12000 @ -35 Plus, I'd be certain that the 5w30 give me superior hot temp protection, based on...

    Mobil 1 0W30 Advanced Fuel Economy SP/GF-6A Cold Performance

    You're right that the CCS will likely be better in the 0w30, but I can't imagine it being much better. I've seen some specs of oil with pour points close to the MRV test temperature and they barely make the CCS and MRV spec for that oil weight. While other oils with lower pour points pass with...

    Wouldn't that be the older (better?) M1 0w30 AFE? Wasn't SP/GF-6A introduced this year? What left you unimpressed?

    Mobil 1 0W30 Advanced Fuel Economy SP/GF-6A Cold Performance

    I am in Canada. Not really in the cold parts anymore, but that might actually be making the situation worse. Used to live in the prairies, where every parking lot (almost) has a block heater outlet. Not here, so I'd like a good winter oil, for the occasional colder days.

    Mobil 1 0W30 Advanced Fuel Economy SP/GF-6A Cold Performance

    Mobil 1 AFE 0W30 (SN/GF-5) used to have an impressive MRV of 13250 @ -40C and a pour point of -50C, so I bought some, not realizing I got the newer SP/GF-6A formula. I was very surprised to find out that the new version has a pour point of only -42C (-39C according to the MSDS) and no longer...
