Lot of people on this site like Quaker State don't they?
Well I'm not sure its mixed I think. But my thinking was we had some people trying to troll some people on QSUD so I tried it in the Toyota. Ran it for an OCI of 5030 miles. Worked just fine no of the issues that the trolls had claimed came to pass. When the price is right I still buy QSFS like last Friday $19.65 a Jug. Its 0W-20 and will get used in the New Mazda! No knotted laundry issues here!

Good stuff, is the better ? Yes.
Would you ever notice a difference?
Maybe only if you extended the drain intervals.

About -5C. I was surprised too but it is true synthetic oil. And it is a winter rated oil.
The 10W doesnt start to factor in until you are below -20C. The QSFS 10W30 also has a rated pour point of -54 C
Any full synthetic motor will help a snow thrower start easier vs the non synthetic. It is not unique to Quaker State. It is a good idea to use synthetic in a snow blower or any cold weather engine for that reason alone.
