good for you Andy

See if i do it, I'm an a-hole.

I have two valvetrains that I'd like to send to MOBIL ONE, from my racing days....kablooey!

Scored cams, galled buckets, ground head caps. Totally attributable to 10-30 Mobil One.

They claim they are the WORLDS LEADING motor oil.

I read this as Wal-Mart sells more of this runny water than anyone.

Me...I'll stick to CASTROL EDGE 5w50...over a quarter of a million miles in an actual SCIROCCO.:wave:

C.A.F.E and oil weights

There is only one reason that companies make 0 weight oils...and to be sure isn't for your engine longevity.

All car companies have to sell cars based on C.A.F.E CORPORATE AVERAGE FUEL ECONOMY

You can bust out the door a lot more expensive high profit Corvettes and Cadillac V series when you can counter balance that with crapping out a half million higher mileage HHR's.

So...by lowering the initial start-up weight of the oil, the gas mileage goes up by say .2 mpg....multiply by 17 million cars, thats a lot of gas savings/profit ratio.

Not one oil manufacturer/car manufacturer has ever published ANYTHING {that I've ever seen} that says how much wear and tear this piss-weight oil does to your engine...what do they care? By the time your 35k mile warrantee is up...it's on you!:thumbdown::thumbdown::banghead:

Thanks for proving my point!

See below. 0w-40 is specifically NOT recommended for VW's

Please note that...to be fair here...VW does not recommend ANY, repeat ANY 0 weight oils...even in NEW warranteed cars....bet you can guess why.

Interestingly, the brand I use and have used with great results, IS recommended.
