Would anything bad happen if you used this oil in a passenger car at the correct grade (5w30)?

No. Sleep well using "truck oil" in your car. All hype.

You might find yourself just inches from the rear of another vehicle when they are doing the speed limit

How would “this oil” know it’s being used in a passenger car engine as opposed to being used in a truck or SUV engine?

You will feel an urge to install truck nuts and listen to country music.
I hate both of those things so that would be bad.
I personally will make sure to stick to passenger car oil so that I can live with my self and my choices.

Happened to me today and I was actually doing 5mph over the posted limit. I was like, tailgating me ain't gonna get me going any faster pal... and if you rear end me, I'm buying a new boat on your insurers dime because it's all on (rear) video cam.😉

(seems a lot of people haven't quite figured out that there's a good chance their driving is being recorded)

Some engines like the 3.6L Pentastar engine is used in cars, mini vans, PUs, and SUVs. It isn't going to matter a bit.

Does using Rotella meant for eighteen wheelers cause your car to drive and pass other vehicles very slowly in the left lane ?? LOL

What oil approval, specification or license does your vehicle require? Does this oil have that? If it does then use it. If it doesn't then don't. That was easy wasn't it?

I wonder how long this is going to last until the plug is pulled.
