Although itís correct to write 5W-30, Iím tired of inserting the W. ( Dubya). Do we really need to do that? I think Iíll just save it for George Dubya. smile

I like it. My new cars use 020 so I don't buy 530 any longer.

The Dubya. Stands for winter. This is an oil forum. All the multi viscosity oils have the W in it. 5W-30, 10W-40. Really donít need it any more. Just like unleaded gas. There hasnít been leaded gas at the pumps in 38 years but we still call it unleaded. Why not call it gas. I use 5-30 in my truck. Donít care about the Dubya.

We say it properly at out terminal and call the "unleaded" "no lead" as it never had lead in it. bop

If it's such a tiring feat, why not just skip every other letter in every post you make, while you're at it? That should certainly help preserve your limited energy.
