I personally have quite a stockpile (65L worth) and have been using, for the past 16 years, Esso XD-3 0W-30, which has been rebranded Mobil Delvac Elite 222 0W-30. Great stuff.

Almost exactly the same story. I used to run Castrol Syntec 0W-30 in my 528i. The Castrol European formula 0W-30 is hard to find sometimes now. If I can't find it, I use Syntec 0W-40.

The 0W-30 was good oil. But apparently it was almost a 40 weight.

I ran Amsoil 0w30 in a lot of cars year round, but my mid-Atlantic temps are not as cold as Canada, nor as hot as Arizona. 20 F is about the normal cold in winter, while 95 F would be close to the extreme hot. I did many UOA with that oil, and never had issues. Once I get rid of my 5w30 stash I may go back to the 0w30.

For the 2019 3/4 ton Ram with the 6.4 liter engine, the owners manual specifies 0w20, 5w20, 0w30, 5w30, 10w30. You can interpret that as you like. smile

That's what's in my Rubicon. The goal is to change my 3 car fleet over to ESP. It should take about another year.

Are there still 0w-30s out there? I bought some on clearance 2 years ago for one of my vehicles and haven't seen it since. I'm guessing since no vehicles use it from the factory?

I have Pennzoil Euro LX 0w-30 in the FXT for the winter right now.

It's a C3 oil, so it's almost a very thick 30 weight (11.9 cst @100c).

The engine is not as quiet as it was with the Rotella 5w-30 or Mobil ESP 5w-30 but the UOA should tell me more.

Did you run the AFE or the ESP? The Ecotec had a lot of Euro input in its design and likes an oil with a higher HTHS. I run the ESP 0w30 in a couple of them and its quiet as a church mouse.

I have used it in my Corvette. I still start it up every 2-3 weeks in the wintertime and it's good for cold starts. I can't remember whats in there now but it's either Mobil 1 or Castrol Magnetec.

It’s easy to think of Arizona as a very hot place, and much of it is. But, don’t forget, Arizona also has elevations of over 12,000’. So, a 0W-30 is actually great for the varied temps there, without many downsides.
