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.

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.

Thanks for the analysis. I’d love to use this in my FA20F when my car reaches 60k miles and is no longer under warranty. The only problem is that it only comes in a 1 gal (4 QT) jug size instead of 1.25 gal (5 QT) or 1 QT bottles. I end up buying extra oil anyway to fill my engine up to 5.5 QT, so I guess it doesn’t matter too much.

Here, in Canada, they come in 5 litres jugs that fill it right up to the full limit perfectly. The only deviation that this oil has from what the manual ask for is that this oil not Ressource Conserving. But it is SN PLUS rated though. Not sure if it would void a warranty.

Yeah, I have found that 5 liter jugs are just about perfect for my FXT!!
