IDK, just saying! The OCI's are probably cut in half with other grades of oil due to the 0W20 being validated and others are not.

cracyoildude - if you want Wix/NG filters (excellent products) at good prices, then check out fleetfilter.com and you can get some really substantial deals in bulk volume. They also now carry Baldwin and such as well.

I get the impression that 0w20 is becoming the most common grade of oil. I read that Toyota allows 10k mile / 1 year oci if you use any 0w20, but if you use anything else that is cut in half. Do the other manufacturers say something similar?

I mix weights and grades all the time. If I can help it, I stay within manufacturer and/or stay with addpacks that seem similar via VOA/UOA from this site. Just mixed some Platinum 0w-20 w/ Shell Formula 10w-40 to a 30 weight since I had to use the
