First time seeing 0w-10. It is also Royal Purple. However they do NOT stock 0W-10 at AutoZone.

So we have an Oil that is thinner than 5W-20 and 0W-20.

I originally saw it in a 5-gallon Drum they wanted $250 for it IIRC.

So, as to discussion, what would this be used for? ANY Street Application? Or no?

They want $14.89 plus shipping and handling.

I found some grades i thought were unavailable this way, for when Stores fail to have your choice of Oil and Grade. Never seen this thin, I wouldnt even use this in a 5W-20 FF application.

Thoughts? Applications?

(I hope that Amazon product link is OK, it goes to the Oil on Amazon.com Thanks)

I think if you read a little, it's pretty easy to find the RP site.

Quote:
XPR 0W10 (Formerly Racing 9)
XPR 0W10 is an ultra-light viscosity motor oil
formulated for gasoline engines used in drag
racing, motorcycle sprint racing, etc.


It's NOT a street oil. Last I checked SAE 0W-10 is not even a recognized viscosity in SAE J300.

NO the link to Amazon is not OK. This type of thing was expressly forbidden by Bob. A tech link to RP, fine - sales at Amazon? No way.

It might be ok to add to dino oil to help assist in flushing an engine gently of some debris or if you wanted to dilute another weight of oil down to something else using this oil.

I wouldn't put this in an engine that wasn't designed for it. I could just hear the bearings grinding.

They should have made a 0W20 oil first, at least there would have been more of a market for it.

As Pablo mentioned, RP's XPR series is not a street designated oil. It's only designed for racing/track use. With that in mind, it has minimal detergent additives for daily driver use. Technically, you could blend it with OTS oils for your daily driver at a minimal rate.
