Hi, First time poster. I've been scouring the forum for information on what oil to run in my 2014 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design with Polestar pack. These are a 335hp 3.0L turbocharged 6 cyl. I'm in Australia so I don't have access to several of the brands that are available elsewhere. Volvo recommend Castrol Edge professional ACEA A5/B5. But doesn't look like Castrol import an equivalent retail version in Australia as their lube guide only lists Magnatec Stop/Start A5. My last fill I used the Nulon recommended 5w30 which actually didn't list A5/B5 but did say it was c3-12 specification. But I was looking at another brand here which is Penrite and there lube guide recommended this. https:/
It also suggested.

I think the HPR 0 is the better choice as per the MSDS it actually has some actual synthetic in the mix whereas the HPR5 is just using Grade III that was my amateur interpretation if I'm reading them right.
But another option I found which they actually don't have linked to their lube guide is their 10 Tenths Racing 5. Which they claim is 100% PAO & Ester plus whatever additives. https:/ www.penriteoil.com.au/ applications/ car-4wd/ engine-oils/ hpr-5-5w-40-full-synthetic / This is actually the same cost to marginally more expensive then the HPR 0 and they say it can be used where the manufacturer calls for ACEA A5/B5, so would it actually be a better oil to use than the HPR 0 or 5? www.penriteoil.com.au/ applications/ car-4wd/ engine-oils/ 10-tenths-racing-5w-30-100-pao-ester
