I did a search on here and I'm a little overwhelmed by all the info. My '22 Subaru Crosstrek calls for an SN or SN+ 0W-20 oil. I was planning on trying the Mobil One ESP 0W-30 just to see how it does on a UOA compared to the 0W-20 I've been using. The ESP appears to be a great oil from everything I've seen on here but it is only ACEA C3 rated. As I was doing more research on here and elsewhere, it appears as though ACEA C3 oil provides less timing chain wear etc than SN or SN+ rated oils. This has me a little hesitant to use the Mobil One ESP 0W-30. Are my concerns warranted? If I missed a thread on here about this, please direct me to it. Thanks!
