Nice to know. So from what you are saying, you believe if I run 4 quarts of 0W16, I have absolutely nothing to worry about as 0W16 is actually like 0W20? Well, I think my next oil change will be 4 quarts of 0W16.Another thought about your 0w-16. The KV100 value of 7.4cSt puts it into the overlap of 0w-20 oils. 20 grades can go as low as 6.90cSt up to 9.29cSt and be called a 20.
Cold weather performance is actually better for Pennzoil Platinum 0w-20 as it has a lower CCS rating and lower pour point than Castrol 0w-16. Of course at -35C I would rather be inside.
Now that it’s $2 I’ll buy a few to mix with the stash of 5w-30 I have. I just picked up 4 jugs of PPPP 0w-20 for $8/jug too. So many choices!
It is really cold out here now in Texas but the cold is nothing like up north. I am not getting very good mpg (though still in the 60s) and who knows if my tire psi has dropped a bit too because of the cold.
That is a good price @$8 for a jug of Pennzoil Platinum 0W20. Your stash must be A LOT! Where do you live? If I knew you had that much stash of over 124 quarts of oil at your house, I would have asked for your address on my road trips that I just finished a few months ago so I could stop by to say hello and get like 12 quarts from you. You have a lot of oil at home. No telling how long it would take to go through all of that.
Well, with this $2 sale, I am going tomorrow to buy 8 quarts. Maybe I might buy 12 quarts. My total stash would have enough oil for 5 or 6 oil changes. If I do 5,000 miles OCI, that means it would last me for 30,000 miles. Wow. That is a long time to go without buying oil again.
