I asked OAI if they could re-run the fuel dilution test for a GC instead of the estimate and they did it very fast! Great service.

Fuel content by GC came back to 2.4%.

Hi, I run SubaruOutback.org and yes 0W-20 is the Subaru recommended oil in the 2020 Outback XT. That being said the owners manual states that it is acceptable to use a full synthetic 5W-30 if need be. Rotella T6 multi-vehicle may be the best 5W-30 on the market IMHO. I'm trying out Rotella Gas Truck 5W-30 in my vehicles right now and will probably get T6 Multi in the future when rebates are available.


Have you seen the manual yet? I presume it will be the same language as they use now stating 5W-30 conventional is acceptable for replenishment if 0W-20 isn’t available.

Great! Typical 2.0DIT fuel dilution.

Got the report from BS, it is very similar to OAI

Such an E6 oil may be one of the best oils on the market, period, given the sheer number of applications for which they are suitable.
