Stout 5w30 meeting SN+

My Wrangler with the 2.0 turbo specs a SN+ 5w30. I plan on towing with it frequently and am wondering if there are 5w30 oils out there that are known to be more stout than some others.

What is stout oil? Quaker State UD, or RGT would work fine, they are slightly thicker in viscosity and hold up well to engines that stress the oil more. I am curious, What do you plan on towing with the wrangler?

5w30 Mobil 1 Truck and SUV, currently clearance for $14.99 at most Tractor Supply Stores. I picked up 5w20 and 5w30 last week.

if cost is no object Amsoil Signiture series. a close sseocnd would be Pennziol Ultra platinum. Even the Amsoil commercial....aahheemmm. reviewer... on youtube said if you cant get Amsoil then use PUP. It to is relatively inexpensive at walamart now at $20.xx /5 qt jug. really i would make a first run with regular synthetic and see what the results are. if its obviously thinned out at the end of an oci, then switch to something else, if not the do a single UOI to see if the visual analysis matches a lab test. I tow my boat with a regular 2007 4.0v6 toyota tacoma and run whatever is on sale. everything from M1,PP, PUP, RGT, QSUD, PYB, ST. Magnetec, valvoline not much difference between any of them after a 5k oci. I get oil so cheap (anywhere from getting paid -$2/jug to $12/5qt jug (sales/clearance/rebates) i dont bother with a 10k oci.

Delo XSP 400 is full syn, CK-4/SN+, 12.1cSt at 100c, 10.0 TBN and HTHS of 3.5. About as "thick" as you can get without being an Xw40.

Does it strictly specify SN+ (which is not strict requirement anyway)? If not, go anything ACEA A3/B3 B4 that also has MB229.5 approval. Those oils are much better performers than anything ILSAC GF-5.

What are you towing?.... lawn equipment. Most likely it'll be frequent light hauls with a 2.0. The heaviest SN Plus Dexos1 / Gen2 I found was Pennzoil Gold Blend..... 100cst is 11.7. I plan on blending a little with my thin regular Pennzoil Platinum. It's a 9.8CST and I'm moving that number up a notch to 10.4 or-so. I'm figuring a blend of two Pennzoil Golds and three Pennzoil Platinum 5W30s for my Hyundai next OCI. The only Stout you need is right after towing light equipment. That would be a pint of Guinness Stout. Just don't drink & drive.

Stout is the dumbest word on Bob. It means nothing having to do with motor oil. It is practically a shared delusion on here.
