Thanks. Probably going to do the 0 considering the abnormal cold we're expecting.

HTHS is where the protection is, and they are about the same.

It's a weird data sheet 'though

I don't think Kentucky ever gets cold enough to where someone genuinely needs 0w-20

Not like in North Dakota or Minnesota....

This vehicle is making a two week stint in Toronto in January. I know it's not like spending a lifetime there, but still...

Its not a "weird" data sheet.
0w20 uses thinner base oils than 5w20, although the 0w20's higher kv100 is due to use of more VII, which increases viscosity on that hotter end of things.
Also, +0.4 cSt isn't much diff anyway.

Kendall does seem to be great oil to use. I hear those oils can go a whopping 2,000 miles between oil changes, as the 2-finger logo touts. Revolutionary it is. Others will follow.
Seriously though, the good amount of Ti in it is cool. (Castrol uses far less Ti.)

Not necessarily. M1 EP and AP 0w-20, which you and I recently discussed, just has more PAO on it versus a 5w-20, which can be made with Group III for example wink

Now of course that's likely not applicable here, but figured I'd mention it, as that's sometimes the case.

OK then...

look at the line that says "HTHS".
Then look a the line straight after it that says [email protected]

Then look at the values in the 30 grades

I see what you're saying.
For example, if you made a full syn 5w20 using entirely GroupIII, as I think Kendall has, you could "convert" that 5w20 product in to a 0w20 by substituting some PAO in for some percentage of the GroupIII, knowing that PAO would allow the cold cranking 0w maximum to be met. (PAO makes seals shrink, so alterations in seal swell chemicals may have to be made, and then you might need some esters for additive solubility... a can o' worms....http://www.machinerylubrication.com/Read/28601/switch-to-synthetic ).

If staying with all-GroupIII for your 0w20, which is what I assume Kendall did here, you would have to use thinner oils and boost the hot kv100 upward via more VII added.

Also, they might have over-shot the minimum new-oil kv100 knowing there probably would be VII permanent shear happening. Good idea to do that.
So that kv100 might (likely will) shear down at mid- to later life of the oil in the sump, but your cold 0w cranking should still be OK since VII mostly affects the hot temperatures, not extreme cold cranking.

The thinner the oil at startup the better. Period.

You're right. I saw that. So many data sheets from other makers have these stupid errors in it. How hard is it for a big oil company to get an engineer to review and edit these things before releasing it to the public?

Thread subject was just looking at the kv100 line, and over-shooting the kv100 isn't a bad idea, so that part isn't weird.

OK, got evidence of that ?

If you are well within the pumpable range, then I disagree with you.

If you are at the limits of pumpability...different matter...and this isn't

Exactly. Or, if it is already PAO based, just use more PAO.

Example:

M1 EP 5w-20 MSDS:


versus:
M1 EP 0w-20 MSDS:



Which would lead one to believe that the VII treat rate is likely quite similar, they just use more PAO in the 0w-xx IMHO.
