Now that I've amassed a stash of 0w-40 and 0w-30, I got rid of the car I was planning on using them in. So I'll find alternate uses for it. Vehicle is a 2018 Forester 2.5I 6MT. More prone to oil consumption. Obviously it's under warranty so 0w-20 is the only thing I will consider for it. I don't think it matters one way or another - all 0w-20s are the same for the most part. Usage will be a 20 mile round trip commute to work. Weekends will be spent on road trips, towing my camper or utility trailer for building supplies (though, I could use the 1-ton truck for that ...). Once it's out of warranty, or once I know I don't have an oil burner I will start using the 0w-30 and 0w-40 in it. As long as I can keep it from rusting out, this will by my forever car. Suggest me some 0w-20s! I'm approaching 1K miles and would like to do an early change before winter. I seem to think that Castrol Edge 0w-20 is "better" than M1 AFE, but have no evidence.
