Its a good oil but usually pricey. What Auto and engine is this going in ?

I have used 8100 Econ-Nergey in 5W30 grade and it was the best synthetic - though very low viscosity - I've run.

In very cold North East USA Winters (-20C) starting and warmup was like the car was in a heated garage!

I have a liter of this oil from an Amazon mistake (they said it was 12 but only 1 arrived and they told me to keep it).
What current synthetic would be good to mix this with? (similar additive package)...Thanks

used to run the 300v for years in my sti and definitely going to try it soon,
i believe the magnatec is not bad it has a lower hths but higher tbn maybe due to the a5 spec.
