No, but it would probably last longer using 10W-30.


Since 80-85% of wear occurs on start why would a 10-30 oil help an engine to last longer than a quicker flowing oil like 0-20 or 0-30?

I have mostly used 5w 20 Motorcraft or Kendall syn blend on my Mazda 3 with no issues. At the moment I'm using PP but will most likely go to Kendall since I only do 5-6K OCI.

Looks like another Idemitsu fluid. Kinda suspected it since they source the M-V ATF from said same source.

Thanks OceanDoctor.
Yes that's definitely an Idemitsu bottle, so that's the source for the Mazda 0W-20 States side.

In Canada, my local Mazda dealer says it's sourced from Petro-Canada but I haven't dropped by to see if it is in the distinctive PC bottle or not. I'm not particularly interested in confirming one way or the other since it's priced at $5.95/L which is more than the Honda/Acura(Idemitsu) 0W-20 and the Toyota 0W-20 of which both are preferred.

Thanks!!!


Here is my UOA on my M6 with the 2.5L with Mobil 1 0w20. I would stick with 0w20 to avoid warranty "issues."

Motorcraft or genuine Mazda but if it's like here Motorcraft are considerably cheaper for the cartridge filter.

Since it is the SM GF-4 version of the Idemitsu 0W-20 it very likely if the same as the original Idemitsu made Honda 0W-20 seen here:

Are you confident it's Idemitsu based on the bottle?

Yes pretty much. Haven't seen the label on the back of the bottle but it might even say made by Idemitsu as the Subaru bottle does.
