I'm also disappointed that there's no 0w30.


Me too, that might have swayed me away from Mobil 1.



Blend your own -- mix the 0w20 and 0w40.


It's easier just to buy the Mobil 1 0W30 and call it a day.

Two questions come to mind. How many domestic and Asian manufacturers spec 0w30?
In the US anyway is 0w30 really necessary when 5w30 is spec?

All we really no about this new oil is it has a pour point of -60f and is GTL.
I don't know others but in the engines spec'd for 5w30 I had no problem whatsoever at -12f, no lifter noise no slow cranking, etc.

I think that's why Mobil goes out of their way to point out that it's acceptable for 5w-30 applications (not to mention pushing the fuel economy issue). Otherwise, it might not move that well.

Check out that 5W-20 pour point. In league with Amsoil SSO

Pour point : Typical -51 C / -60 F

Nice!

I'm curious to when this will actually hit the shelves or if this product even exists. I wish there was a 0w-30 too but understand that no OEM uses that grades.

I think the 0w20 would be fine for most cars anyways....

I agree, I bet most of the cars in the next few years will be on to 0w20. GM, Honda, Kia, and other have already made the move. Its just a matter of time until Ford and Dodge go that route as well. COP alreay has a 0w20 blend, so I bet Ford will have it spec'd in the next few years.

However, I would probably not use a 0w20 in my ecoboost specing 5w30.

I asked about "Pennzoil Ultra Platinum" on Pennzoil's Facebook page a few days ago. So far no comment. They are being tight lipped.

It wouldn't be the first time for SOPUS to publish some spec sheets in advance of any marketing activity. They have also published documents for products which were never released. Example: Pennzoil Ultra Euro 0w-40. TDS and MSDS for it were published more than a year ago. The product is nowhere to be found.

That would have a great acronym, PUTD/W MST5K, or PUTDMST5K for short.
