Why is Blackstone calling it 5W-30 in the comments ?

It may be a low viscosity for 0W-40, but not for 5W-30.

My car is also a Nissan but mine a 4cyl. It thins oil, too, that's why I asked once about going up to 0w-40 instead of the specified 5w-30. I think Blackstone may agree with me.

I'm not sure. That confused me a little as well. Typo?

How long was this oil in use? Seems like low mileage for a early 90s car.

Oil was used for 3,500 miles. Car had 90k original miles at end of OCI.

Blackstone needs to proof-read their messages. I proof-read my messages here at BITOG and I'm not even getting paid for it!

These cars definitely beat up the oil. Mine basically turned Royal Purple 20W50 into a 10W40 within 3200 miles,but the uoa was perfect! I know absolutely nothing about Mobil 1 0W40,but the viscosity on your uoa report is the same weight as a 10W30. I thing Castrol Edge 10W30 is somewhere between 10.5-11 @100C.

Here's my latest uoa, GTX 20W50. It turned this one into a 10W40 as well. I think this oil starts out close to 20 @100C:

This looks like an older formulation of M1 0w40 with so little magnesium. Or maybe I'm just not up to date.

Charles, did you ever get your Pennzoil Platinum 10W-30 tested ?

I was wondering how it compares to GTX 20W-50 in your 300ZX.

I know !!!
The GTX returned 1 ppm iron in 3000 miles.

Any less and it would be in negative numbers and start depositing metal.
