I picked one up too and noticed that it had the same cap as the 0w20 fuel economy next to it. Im guessing maybe they just put it on the 0wXX. I don't think a 40 grade would be for fuel economy.
I'm hoping to use it in my STi after I use up some rotella and gc 0w40.

I noticed a lot of new AFE bottles are coming with the standard gray cap.
