My neighbor gave me a 5 quart container of this oil. I have a 2018 Subaru Forester, 1999 saab 93, 2006 scion XA, and a 92 Nissan Pathfinder. Can I use this oil in any of these vehicles? I’m located in Southern California

You could probably use it in all of those vehicles without any issue.

I would only use it in the saab or the pathfinder.

The other engine are viscosity sensitive due to the VVT cam phasers and light reciprocating components AND oil cooling requirement.

My Subaru FB engine didn't really like a thick 5W 20 grade in it during the summer

This is tried and tested, not sitting around a keyboard just guessing

I ran a 0w-40 in my FB25 Forster and it didn't seem to be too happy once the temperature cooled down. Had some weird stuttering and part throttle cruise misfires until the temperature was all the way up

In your location it will be fine in any but the pathfinder would be the one I use it in. The old Saab iron ecotec really like higher viscosity oils and a higher level of zinc if you want the cam chain to live a longer life.
I run Delo LE 5w40 or Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5W40 or Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck in these and Mobil 1 5w30 ESP or Castrol 0w40 in the later aluminum block engines.

Is the Forester still under warranty? If so, I'd probably use whatever the OM calls for in that one. Not because I think Edge 0W-40 will cause any issue, but to avoid any potential warranty claim hassles.

Your 08 is a later aluminum block engine with a later version of the cam chain tensioner to say nothing about the difference in location.

In the summer time, there is no way a 5w-20 would behave differently than a 0w-20.

I’m using it in both my 3.6 Pentastar v6’s. I cannot tell a difference between it and 0w20 or 5w20 other than it is slightly quieter. I’d use it and not think twice.

Here we go with blanket statement again with no data or experience.

I just TOLD you it did.

I drove the car, ride in the car on trips an I noticed the difference. It was easily drivable, but didn't rev as eagerly, a little bit sluggish - but quieter running when hot.

Are you aware that Japanese 0W20 are directed at fuel conservation and high efficiency? Moreseo than 5W?

They tend to be formulated closer to the BOTTOM of the 20 grade range. whereas 5W20 are near the TOP of the 20 grade range.

Suabru idemitsu KV40 is ~ 37 cSt
KV100 is ~7.8

Here is (plain vanilla) Mobil 1 5W20
Viscosity @ 100ºC, cSt (ASTM D445) 8.9
Viscosity, @ 40ºC, cSt (ASTM D445) 49.8
Viscosity Index 160

Recall that this engine oil temp runs well below boiling; Around 77C

I'm not sure when 0w40 was first introduced but in my research and reviewing my owners manuals, not one of my cars recommends 0w40. Saab recommends 10w30 or 40, Nissan 5w30 or 10w30, scion 5w30, forester 0w20. I think I will pass along the Castrol 0w40 to someone that can use it.
thanks for all the replies
