I was in the parts store today getting an oil filter and noticed that this particular location had all sorts of Rotella on the shelf, something I'm not used to seeing around here. I was thinking of picking some up and using it in my Frontier over the winter. I searched but didn't turn up any info on the 0W30. I honmestly didn't even know it existed until today.

The specs on the 0W-30 and 0W-40 are really good. I'm pretty sure C-T used to sell this as 'Motomaster F1 Synthetic blend 0W-30', but they stopped selling it - now they just sell 5W-30 and 10W-30.
