VaderSS, True, not in my vehicles. For a qualifying oil (for some racing categories) you would probably want a low vis oil to avoid pumping losses or viscous friction in order to turn in low ET's. As for my daily driver, no way, no how! [Big Grin]

That was a year ago. Any update? Anyone tried it? Looks like an ultimate oil, pour point is -80 and it helps protect racing engines in hot weather. Does the fact that it has SH / SJ and ILSAC GF -1 and 2 mean or infer it can be driven with no snow on the ground? I don't want to quote their site too much but they say "...under severe high and low temperatures...NEO has a greater tolerance to heat than most synthetic oils which begin to lose actual volume from exposure to heat at 115°C, or 239°F. This greater heat tolerance also translates into longer engine life...Even with extended drain intervals, NEO's High Performance Synthetic 0w-5 maintains it's viscosity to provide the ultimate in uncompromised engine protection." Of course when they say "When you use any of NEO's motor oils you will no longer have a need for Teflon, moly's or graphite's." I don't exactly feel like buying a case. Anyone think it would be good to try for a few months of Manitoba's dreadful winters? ( [Off Topic!] but our forecast says it'll go up to 86 Sunday, yesterday they said a few degrees more. We are in the paradise season) [Canada]
