aa1986 brings up an interesting observation. Which engine oil will provide better fuel economy 0W20 or 5W16? An SAE 20 is a 10W20, as an SAE 30 is 15W30. Therefore European diesel automobiles sold in NA, may one day specify 10W20 for CAFE purposes.

Interesting. That stuff is pretty dense and belted pretty tightly together, so it makes decent sense if it was transported from someplace warmish and saw any sun. The other day I was in a restaurant, it was maybe 41 degrees outside and 65 inside.
