It is. But why?@edyvw
Whats your opinion, can i use a 5W50, too in my Engine ? Or can i damage the engine With too high viscosity ?

I would go X3 in DI engine.I only Drive in the summer, german Autobahn With Highspeed. Not very Often on racetrack, Maybe 2-3 times a year, 100 Kilometer.
I have two options, mobil 1 fs 0W40, or mobil 1 espx3 0W40.
Amsoil Signature Series 10W30 i have , too in may garage. But i dont think LSPI is a Problem in this Engine, so i do not Must use API SP..
What about oil too thick to ensure proper flow on the camshafts when the engine is "abused" while the oil isn't properly warmed, leading to long term top end/camshafts damages?
I suppose that's between operator error, urban legend and poorly designed engines.
You cannot in any way tell that from this UOA. It is the wrong tool for that job and not capable of what you believe it is doing.I'll say it again, thinner oil for the win
They may work fine as you say and that’s not what I meant. You are using an inadequate tool to determine that, however.And I say it again, you can. And the practical examples, as available several times here in the forum, show this again and again how well and almost perfectly such oils work. If you doubt the measurement method and particle size forever, then this is nothing more than an attempt to look at thick oils as the non plus Ultra. They just don't are. The highest demands on oils today are the thin liquid oils and no longer the convetoll viscosity classes. This can also be read with lubrizol.
