Iím really curious to know what oil people are running in theirís small displacement turbo charged engines? Can you guys chime in with brand/viscosity grade? Mine is currently filled with 0w20 Amsoil SS and I have a jug of M1 0w30 for the next OCI

M1 5W30 AP, previous was M1 5W30 ESP.
It was important to me that the AP had a dexos1 Gen 2 license #, plus I got a rebate as well as a $10 WM gift card (promotion has ended now) so the price wasn't really that bad ($40 - $10 - $12 = $18 net out of my pocket).

Right now, running a couple of short OCI's w/PYB 5w20 (with a little T6 mixed in)

This December when I'm done, I'm going with either: Redline 5w30, Amsoil Sig. 5w30, or Castrol 0W30
prolly Fram Ultra or Amsoil Ea filter.

Gonna try to get to 7500K miles on OCI

Wife's Q5 does not have turbo, but it has a supercharger... it runs on dealer-provided Castrol Edge 5w-40.

I know rooflessVW finds this oil sub-par, but i still wonder why you never see it for sale at part stores. There are enough Audi vehicles on our roads, i'd think.

Very very interesting. So far, looks like no one with 0w20...well, except for myself. Is there any particular reason 0w20 doesn't go into y'alls engines?

Subaru recommended 5W30 for my engine.
I would consider going in the direction of higher film thickness, but not lower.

Huh? We sell TONS of this on a daily basis at the O'Reilly I work at. I'd say 5w-40 is our most popular weight of Edge. All those European oil-burners in Marin wink

I use 5W20 in my GDI Sonata but it isn't turbo charged
The Santa Fe Sport 2.0T allows for 5/10w30 and 5w40, along with other viscosity, but not a XXW20

I'm sure you're right. I just haven't seen it but it's probably right under my nose.
