quote:If you look at the various European Mobil 1 web sites, there are really only two Mobil 1 grades sold in Europe right now: 0w40 and 5w50. (Edit: The German Mobil web page does list the A5 rated 0w30, too.) The 0w40 (and 0w30) are the only ones sold in the US and Europe. However, all the grades of Mobil 1 sold in the US (with the exception of 0w20) meet the A5 spec, which is just as tough as A3, it's just a low friction, low HT/HS spec.
