#4492710 - 08/19/17 10:26 AM M1 AFE 0w-20 or EP 0w-20

I'm considering giving the thin stuff another try since I've replaced my PCV valve and consumption is back down to 1qt in 6000 miles or so.

I've looked at the PDS for both oils and they seem about the same.

Is there any practical difference between the two oils?

The AFE is plenty good for 10k mile intervals if you plan to exceed maybe consider the EP. I found the AFE seemed to run better but it was by no means a scientific method, just seat of my pants.

Tig1 is probably the best example of running AFE 10k on both his cars with good results

I agree that for 10K miles or less....AFE is the way to go....beyond 10K I'd go with EP...

In my experience and application AFE outperformed EP, so I would choose AFE.

The only advantage to paying the extra money for EP is if you plan on exceeding 10k. Otherwise, save a few dollars and just get the regular AFE 0w20 smile

Ever think of blending m1 10w30hm with 0w20afe.
With just 0w20 your consumption likely to increase from 10w30hm.

on second thought, why not use M1 HM 0w20? Thin, but also has stuff to slow down consumption smile

With just about a $3 difference in price at walmart, my vote is for EP. You may not need the 15,000 mile capability but the extra margin of safety and a little more oil "strength" is worth it to me. I only use EP.

I use Mobil I 0W-20 AFE for fall oil change and AFE 0W-30 for spring oil change. Been using Mobil I since I believe 1978 after reading an article on synthetic oil in Popular Mechanics. Good products. smile

I agree with this. Next OCI, I'm going with 0w20 EP in my Pilot.

I'll run 15k as long as I don't see massive consumption.

I was using a quart in 2k but that went back to a quart in 6k after I replaced the PCV valve. It ran 5w20 for the first 100k or so with this same rate of use so fingers crossed it stays the same with 0w20

Anyone think that there is a mileage difference between the two? I realize it would be small if any.
