Interesting read. https://www.infineuminsight.com/en-...um=email&utm_source=Infineum+Insight

That’s going to be some thin oil! smirk2

Isn't that putting the cart before the horse? First you design a new engine then the oil for it. Here they created the oil but no application yet. 0W20 was a pretty radical idea when it first came out some 20 years ago for hybrid cars to make the frequent restarts easier and the oil to flow faster, but now it's spec'd for all kinds of engines.

Racing application only , IMHO. Those thin racing oils exists for decades

I'd think you would want thicker oil with the increased stress between parts in a race motor.

There is no such thing as Lifetime ATF's and coolants since all fluids degrade and need replenishment/replacement.

US Lubricants has used this base oil for at least the prior 5 years in their ECO Hydraulic Fluid's.

Renewable Lubricants Incorporated has been using various bio-derived base oils for over 15 years, so this is nothing new.

BTW, many of these bio oils were developed at the University of Northern Iowa. How do I know? ???

You get the most power out of the engine by having the least oil pumping losses. Granted, I think it's only for drag racing so 1/4 mile at a time.
